Two themes, one scenographic experience
Travel through several thousand years of human history thanks to a modern, fun-filled and interactive scenography suitable for young and old alike! Discover the unique prehistoric remains found in the Scladina Cave and the know-how of the craft workers, industrialists and ceramic artists of Andenne.
At the heart of Prehistory: New fossilised bones are uncovered every year in the caves of Andenne, but the most important are undisputedly those of the Neanderthal child of Scladina. Head off to see these remarkable remains, Belgium’s most spectacular anthropological discovery of the 20th century, and take part in an extraordinary scientific adventure alongside researchers!
At the heart of Ceramics: Materials, knowledge and know-how: these words alone sum up the magic of ceramics, a skill mastered in this region from Ancient Times to the present day. Share the secrets of those who bring forth the most surprising technical and artistic creations! Along the route, discover the wealth of the tangible and intangible heritage of the Andenne region and the conservation and restoration techniques specific to the exhibits.
But EMA is also…
The Scladina Cave, the only permanent excavation site open to visitors in Belgium and scene of the most important anthropological discovery of the 20th century. Meet our archaeologists and our excavators when you visit this unmissable site, six kilometres from Andenne city centre.
