Mons – 6 museums under construction. Where art and history will live.

Through plans, sketches, models and photos, this exhibition will present the new settings destined to display the wealth and variety of the city's collections.

Several years ago, considerable thought was paid to re-accommodating the heritage of Mons's museums.

Thanks to support from the European FEDER Fund, the French Community of Belgium and the Walloon Region, the City of Mons was able to launch some ambitious museum projects and work with prestigious architects to enhance six symbolic places: the two UNESCO World Heritage sites (the Belfry and the Neolithic flint mines of Spiennes), as well as the Pawnbroker's, the Ursuline Chapel, the Water Machine and the Jean Lescarts Museum.

Through plans, sketches, models and photos, this exhibition will present the new settings destined to display the wealth and variety of the city's collections.
