- Industrial heritage
Le Pass is a unique attraction featuring interactive, family-friendly exhibitions to approach science in a different way. The site is situated just 6 km from Mons.
Fascinating activities for children and adults complete the experience. Built on a former coal mine, the architecture was renovated by architect Jean Nouvel. Its design alone is worth a detour.
Le Pass also invites you to discover an unseen movie "Together" on sustainable energy and citizens' initiatives. Don't miss the showroom where the "H2O!" movie (on sustainability and access to water for all) is screened on the 5 sides of a giant cube.
