In September 2018, the new Museum Vieille Montagne opened its doors in a magnificent Art Nouveau building (1910), completely restored. The common thread of the permanent exhibition? Calamine, an ore that closely links the history of the village of La Calamine, the Company Vieille-Montagne and Neutral Moresnet.

Experience the fascinating history of a small area that was coveted for its mineral resources. The fate of Kelmis is inextricably linked with calamine, an ore which has been mined there for centuries. The production of zinc, a new material of the 19th century, takes it into an industrial dimension. The museum presents this adventure in the authentic setting of the Vieille-Montagne management building, which dominates the former mining site. Discover a unique political and social experiment that has been carried out here for 103 years: Neutral Moresnet.

The former train station building hosts a local history exhibition by the association Kelmis 1871, with a focus on railway history.
