Mémoire de Verriers (Glassworkers' memories): poignant accounts by old glass workers from the Cristallerie. The 18 minutes film pays homage to those whose know-how continues to uphold the reputation of the Val Saint Lambert.

An exceptional collection of 250 pieces presenting the artistic evolution of the Cristallerie since its creation in 1826. It showcases its flourishing eras, the different styles and the various techniques used.

5 glass sculptures by Belgian artist Bernard Tirtiaux, a sensory approach to the material and contemporary art at its most impressive.

A journey back in time in the converted cellars of the castle to discover the history of glass.

An immersive trail retracing the history of glass, from Antiquity to the present day.
