    Discover, thanks to this exhibition, the significant events of the Battle of Mons, which took place in August 1914. In Mons from 22/08/14 to 23/11/14!

    The events of going to war will naturally be evoked to introduce those of the Battle of Mons.

    The aim of this exhibition, which takes place within the Museum of Fine Arts, will be to place the object or the historical piece at the centre of the reflection, whilst at the same time ensuring that is it not being glorified.

    An unbiased scenography, or rather a staging will facilitate the appearance of the Battle of Mons, not just from a historical or chronological perspective, but also in the form of an unveiling of history on the subject.

    A great occasion to discover philosophy of the future Mons Memorial Museum with a sneak-peek of some pieces, accounts and photographs that will be displayed in the future museum space (opening scheduled in 2015).

    A little something worth knowing!

    The BAM also has two distinct themed exhibitions: one centred around art and the other, from a historical perspective. Both exhibitions are united by chronology of events and play a part in the 14-18 commemorations...
