cité des sciences


The “Centre National de la Culture Industrielle” (CNCI) (National Centre for Industrial Culture) is closely related to the conservation project for the Belval blast furnaces, which are an outstanding national history memorial. An integral part of a new urban district, which they dominate with their majestic silhouettes, blast furnaces A and B serve as both museum shell and content for this vibrant site, where the past and present meet. The CNCI aims to become a cultural centre at both national and cross-border levels, allowing Luxembourg’s steel industry to be discovered, but also more generally, industrial culture and labour history.
