Le Fonds Belval - "Massenoire" building

Description

An exhibition space like no other.

The Massenoire is refurbished as part of Esch2022, European capital of culture, and will host exhibitions throughout the year.
The stuffing production hall is located near blast furnace A and runs along the ramp leading to the high passage. It used to house the various equipment used to make the taphole tamping mass, also called black mass (tar-based). On its 6 m long covered side extension, the hall has a canopied part on the outside which served as a shelter for the dryers of the casting ladles. After the introduction of counter-pressure operation, the production of tamping compounds was ceased and the production hall was taken out of service at the end of the 1970s.
Pre-registration at the Visitor Centre is required. The Visitor Centre is located in the "Halle des poches" under blast furnace A.
