"SUPER-PUPPETS, the exhibition in which you are the SUPERHERO!"

'Super Puppets' (Promotional Poster)

From 06/26 - 12/31/2019

There's panic in the puppet world! The devil has opened the gates of hell, and Nanesse has been abducted by terrifying creatures. The puppets need some superheroes to help Tchantchès save the day.

You could be one of them! To succeed, you will have to travel through six strange worlds populated by puppets and pass through trials of strength and skill. Like in a video game, you'll only be able to access the next world if you manage to find the hidden clue.

You'll face the recklessness of Chivalry, the magic of Fairy Tales, the madness of the Laboratory, the bewitchment of the Shadows, the illusion of the Screens and finally, the terror of Hell.

If you complete all the trials successfully, you'll be able to rescue Nanesse and send the devil back to where he came from.

Designed for the young and the young at heart, SUPER-PUPPETS is a game-style exhibition in which the player/visitor learns while having fun. An original way to discover this rich and diverse heritage. The exhibition presents the Museum's own collection of rod, glove, shadow and string puppets and items from other museums such as the Musées Gadagne in Lyon, the Centre de la marionnette de Tournai, the Musée d'Histoire Contemporaine in Paris and the Museum aan de Stroom in Antwerp…

"LEONARDO DA VINCI, the inventions of a genius"

LEONARDO DA VINCI EXHIBITION POSTER

From 02/06 - 05/12/2019

This exhibition was created in Brugge in 2017 by Jean-Christophe Hubert & Vincent Damseaux, both from Liège. Currently displaying in Lyon, this exhibition also toured Istanbul & Antalya. Barcelona, Moscow, Kiev and Dubai will follow Liège. Through this world's largest collection of 120 models created in Liège and based on Da Vinci's original sketches, visitors will discover 250 objects featuring documents and reproductions of the Genius.

The exhibition is the result of a team gathering ingeneers, historians, designers and craftsmen whose work is based on the most recent scientific and historical knowledges.
Displayed through a dynamic and astonishing scenography, the collection will be displayed like never ever before.

AN OUTSTANDING INGENUITY


Leonardo Da Vinci, the famous painter, sculptor, philosopher, urbanist, anatomist and botanist bequeathed a legacy of more than 6,000 note pages including hundreds of inventions and experiments. More than an inventor, Leonardo Da Vinci also excelled in the way he transmitted both ancient technologies and knowledges having helped moulding the future as shown inside the exhibition. His inquisitive nature also pushed him to elaborate both scientific and technical knowledges that had been ignored by the European Culture. Da Vinci's work, both turned to the future and the past, is still fascinating and inspiring…



OTHER FACETS OF A GENIUS

The exhibition consists of several themes featuring ‘the War', ‘Strategic systems', ‘Weaponry & engines', ‘Mechanics and mechanical drives', ‘Lifting and construction', ‘Utility machinery relating to water and to the air', ‘Machine-tools' and ‘Measuring machines'.

Masterpieces and Artwork will also complete the exhibition through previously unreleased movies. Architectural projects as far as scientific treatises will include the famous ‘Vitruvian Man', the drawing presenting ‘the proportions of the human body'.

FOR THE CHILDREN TOO !

Educational kits for children and young people (Primary/secondary cycles) are available. But we also offer activities and a « treasure hunt » through the exhibition ! Twenty engines will be displayed and children will be allowed to manipulate them !

THE MAX ELSKAMP COLLECTION FROM THE MUSEUM OF WALLOON LIFE

For the very first time, the Museum will display its great collection of gnomonic-related objects, part of the legacy of the symbolist poet Max Elskamp since 1932.

The collection gathers measuring and scientific instruments as far as astrolabs from the 14th to 19th centuries. One of the most exceptional and unique collection in the world !
