Most spectacularly, it is easy to visit all of them with combitickets and special discounts. For 25 euros, you can get the “Auf ins Museum!” combination ticket, which gives you admission to 26 museums in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine.
Euregional networks of museums
Your region is historic home to the first ever copper industries (Stolberg, Germany) and hosted the first steam engine on the European continent (Liège, Belgium). The network of industrial museums provides an overview – from the production of liquors to textiles.
The history of the Euregio Meuse-Rhine is also linked to the mining industry. In all sub-regions, this industry was the main driver of the economy. When the coal industry was phased out towards the end of the 20th century, the first cross-border networks were created to jointly manage structural change.
“Art does not need a common language, it is international by nature.” This is the motto of the Very Contemporary network. Here you will find a collection of events, exhibitions and museums of contemporary art – all in a radius of 100 km².
Common history of the people between Meuse and Rhine
Terra Mosana is another way to call this Euregio Meuse-Rhine. The project and video below display the commonly shared cultural heritage(s) and how the stories, people and languages in this area are historically interwoven.
National highlights and free entrances
One year and just 59 € to visit more than 186 museums – sounds like a good deal, doesn’t it? That’s exactly what the museumPASSmusée in Belgium offers. Additionally, you have free or discounted access so several exhibitions.
Belgium also has a scheme that offers free admission to a number of participating museums on the 1st Sunday of every month. More information and an overview of the museums can be found on artsetpublics.be.
