Schiffshebewerke des belgischen Canal du Centre

Reviewed By Tinde_K - Moscow, Russia

The four ascensors in La Louviere is a freely accessible site, part of European industrial heritage. Find it on google maps, drive and park somwhere nearby. There are other ascensors right inside La Louviere, we went towards the first one. You can also walk by the canal and see all of them. Very interesting.

Centre of Engraving and the Printed Image

At 40 minutes' drive from Brussels, the Centre for engravings is a polyvalent meeting, creation and research place dedicated to the contemporary prints. Its amazing collection of 12.500 art works made by 1.640 Belgian and foreign artists shows the wealth of modern and contemporary art from the second half of the 20th century onwards. This lively and dynamic museum was entirely renovated and extended in 2011. From June 3rd to November 5th, 2017, an exceptional exhibition: "Pierre Alechinsky. Les palimpsestes".

I can't understand why more is not known about this excellent museum/gallery. Even if you do not know much about print-making, the pictures and range of techniques are fascinating. For anyone with children there is an excellent 'corner' where prints and rubbings can be made - and a large print collage made by children is on the wall

Keramis-Centre de la Ceramique

Real space for art and patrimonial heritage, research and creation, the Keramis center is erected on the site of the former faiencerie Boch in La Louviere, in the Belgian province of Hainaut. Its contempory architecture unfolds around a former workshop containing three bottleshaped charcoal fired kilns classified as historical monument(s). The Keramis center is the first Belgian art center dedicated to contemporary ceramics.

I only heard about this museum when I went to the local tourist office to ask about another exhibition in La Louvière. I was persuaded to buy a pass giving me access to a number of different museums in the area. So I thought I might as well check out this stylish museum of ceramics, which showcases the production of the Royal Boch factory over the centuries. It was quite difficult to find, as the address was not marked on the map I had. This is because it is part of a completely new development, including an attractive green area, but only a very short walk away from La Louvière Centre station (across a car park and road).
I particularly liked the enormous bottle-shaped kilns around which the main hall was built. Apparently activities are organised for children inside these. I also loved all the beautiful vases and other pieces on display in glass cases, especially the Art Deco ones, as that is my favourite style.

Bois du Luc

Reviewed By Pausadias - Montpellier, France

Difficult to find, west of la louviére,this site gives us a general overview of the wolrd of coal mining in Wallonie.You don't enter into a mine itself,for this you have to go to Blegny near Liége,but you visit the offices,the houses (still inhabited for most of them )all the surface buildings that are remaining;Some have been destroyed due an initial shopping center project ;You get a glimpse of the hard life endured by the miners and their family although they were taken in charge in every part of their lives by the mining company.Hard life that got better along the ages until the final closure in 1973.I want to congratulate the guide on duty that day at 1 .30pm (Oct 31 ),highly dedicated to his job.

MiLL - Musee Lanchelevici

Reviewed By MarianneNearLeeds - Near Leeds

We had never heard of Ianchelevici, in spite of knowing quite a bit about art and being regular visitors to galleries. His sculptures are beautiful and varied, made in stone, marble and bronze. However, at this moment there is a quite wonderful and extraordinary exhibition of work by an Italian artist called Willy Verginer. He is a sculptor who works in solid wood (linden and pear) creating images of people and animals decorated with acrylic and intriguing buildings growing out of and into trees and branches. Definitely one of the best and most interesting Exhibitions I have ever seen!
