You could think of it as magic…starting off with a dusty piece of coal and finishing off with glasses and vases of flawless purity. That is what you can discover here at the Creusot-Montceau Eco-museum, by delving into the bowels of the earth at its coal mines and the factories that once served as the Queen’s glassworks. And this site does not just deal with a brief instant in Creusot life. Imagine the centuries rolling by, brought to life by the heat of that same coal: mines, glassworks, foundries, ceramic factories… Then one day, everything stopped. If you are curious, come and learn how and why this happened !
