On three levels, the life history of the railway is explained through tools, objects, old photos, paintings by local artists and replicas. A fantastic miniature railway reconstruction will fascinate young and old alike. The underground is taken up by the Lhoist quarries where one can find didactic display panels, stones, fossils and minerals: an allusion to the role of the railway workers during the war of 1940-45 in a village sorely distressed by bombing attacks. An imposing edifice of the last century which was successively a hotel, a town hall until the merger of the towns in 1976, a court of justice and finally, since 2000, the Railway and Stone Center.
