    Discover an exhibition which lets you discover the Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse region in an unusual way... in Charleroi from 17/09 to 06/06/14!

    Just like a geographer, compare maps and ask yourself if the information they hold is linked and in what way.

    Make a hypothesis and try it out. Look at landscapes and see how the many components of the land, such as geology and habitat, can explain them, and how man has shaped it.

    Understand how the region has evolved and find signs of occupation left over the centuries. See how they turn towards the future.

    Find answers to all your questions

    Also learn how inhabitants lived and what they lived on, why Treignes train station is the shape it is, etc.

    What's strange about the map of Mariembourg? Why is the central square of villages so spread out?

    Treat yourself to this exhibition by the Scientific Culture Centre and discover the different aspects of this region!

    Discover the many jobs of geographers and the technologies they use while you visit this varied region, rich in heritage, in their company.
