Come and discover the secular history of the Val Saint Lambert site, as well as the glass work techniques used in the old Cistercian abbey.


The Cristal Discovery museum is:
Mémoire de Verriers (Glass workers' memories), poignant accounts from old glass workers at the Cristallerie in an 18 minute film that pays homage to those whose know-how continues to uphold the reputation of the Val Saint Lambert.

An exceptional collection of 250 pieces showing the artistic evolution of the Cristallerie since its creation in 1826 and through the great periods, different styles and various techniques used.

5 glass sculptures by Belgian artist Bernard Tirtiaux, a sensory approach to the material graces contemporary art in its most monumental form.

A journey back in time to discover the history of glass in the converted setting of the castle.
