A stone's throw from Rochefort, this museum reveals all aspects of the Belgian railway and limestone.
The Rail and Stone Centre is located in the former village hall of Jemelle, a small village in the province of Namur.
Over three floors, you can discover a collection of tools, railway artefacts of yesteryear, photos and posters, uniforms and kepis as well as reconstructions explaining the history of the railway and the railwaymen's resistance during the Second World War.
If you visit the museum with your children, don't miss the miniature railway. You won't be able to resist playing the driver and taking the controls in a simulation of a driver's cab.
It also offers 2 rooms dedicated to geology and local quarrying. The latter has been carried out by the Lhoist society since 1924. After your visit, you'll be an expert on limestone extraction, lime production and the riches found below ground in Jemelle.
