The "Salle des Machines" (Machine Room)

The Machine Room for shaft 11 is a listed building, as is the whole pit-head frame and the Belvedere.

Connected to the Belvedere by a glass passageway, the Machine Room is a magnificent "concrete cathedral", which formerly housed the machinery essential to the colliery's operation.

The former coal-mining equipment room will turn into a "realm of possibilities" that will offer you over 1000 m2 of new exhibition pieces to discover in 2017 : The chemistry lab exhibition, Expo' Nature 2.0 (april 2018), and the WAOUH ZONE and THE PIXEL FACTORY: a dual-space dedicated to digital cultures.
