The Glass Museum at the Bois du Cazier

  • Industrial heritage

The Glass Museum, at the Bois du Cazier in Marcinelle, retraces five thousand years of art, history and technology.

The collections are presented from an innovative angle: a backwards chronology invites the visitor on a completely new voyage, from the present day to the origins of glass.

The Glass Museum workshop
