Collections

This museum, which is installed in the 18th century cellars beneath the present-day basilica, consists of 9 rooms housing various collections, including: archaeology, ironwork, firebacks, paintings, gold- and silverware, stalls, and old furniture. You will also find two models, the first representing the abbey in the 12th century, and then in the 18th century; the second a maquette of the present-day buildings following plans drawn up by the architect Henri Vaes, which were somewhat altered at a later date. 18th century cellars acting as foundations for the present-day basilica, where 9 rooms were furbished and floored in 1970 to form the museum.
