SPRIMONT A visit to the Pierre interpretation center

Unique in Belgium, the museum space of the Stone Interpretation Center is located in the heart of an active quarry site in a remarkable building.

Home and playground for stone sculptors, it is a lively place that offers the rare opportunity to see artists creating.


The stone museum has been installed since 1985 in the former power station of the Sprimont quarries. An unusual building, built at the instigation of Mathieu Van Roggen, director of the Sprimont quarries at the beginning of the 20th century. Its architecture is particularly aesthetic and neat. A showcase of the quarry and equipped with cutting-edge technological equipment, the power plant placed electrical energy on a real pedestal: the machines are placed on a terrazzo floor topped with two statues in honor of Zénobe Gramme which frame the room centerpiece of the building: an Art Nouveau electrical panel. This building now houses the Stone Interpretation Center.

The listed building has been renovated while respecting the materials and its industrial roots while facilitating access for people with reduced mobility.
