Museum Vieille Montagne

Place :Kelmis

From  5,00 €


Experience the fascinating history of a small area that was sought-after because of its natural resources. The fate of the village Kelmis is inseparable from the calamine, which was mined there for hundreds of years. The manufacturing of zinc, the new material of the 19th century, gave the place an industrial dimension. The museum relates this adventure on a genuine site, the administration building of the Vieille-Montagne, which stands out at the former mining site.
Discover a unique political and social experiment that was conducted here for 103 years: Neutral-Moresnet.
