EBEN-EZER TOWER - FLINT MUSEUM (MUSEE DU SILEX ASBL)
4690 EBEN-EMAEL (BASSENGE)
- MAPS: Google Maps
Built in the 1960s in the middle of an isolated site in the Jeker valley, this fantastic tower was built with large rubble flint stones from the nearby quarry, by Robert Garcet . Its seven levels end with a terrace in the corner of which stand several sculptures of winged animals (the bull, the lion, the eagle and the sphinx). Inside, an exhibition recounts the building of the tower and Robert Garcet's pacifist action.
A new interactive educational space called "Geospadium" leads the visitor (from 9 years old) to the Cretaceous period to discover the flint stone formation process and its use throughout the history of humanity, fossils, fauna and flora.
Weekdays 1/11-31/03: Open on appointment booked 48 hours in advance.
Geospadium open on Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 12 am.
Exhibitions, video, publications, brochure on Robert Garcet's work.
Children younger than 12 years: free of charge.
