Come and discover the secular history of the Val Saint Lambert site, as well as the glass work techniques used in the old Cistercian abbey.
The Cristal Discovery museum comprises of:

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.
