Grand-Hornu is a grand venueGrand-Hornu is home to two exceptional collections: ‘Grand-Hornu Images’, focused on images and design and MAC –the Museum of Contemporary Art. No surprise that the prestigious ‘Europalia Brazil’ organization chose Grand Hornu as the site for one of its unique exhibitions: Pearls of Liberty, a collection of historic and contemporary Afro-Brazilian jewellery.
Built between 1810 and 1830, the Grand Hornu is an old industrial mining complex - a remarkable reminder of the Industrial Revolution. This venue is much sought after not only for exceptional exhibitions, but also for meetings and other events. It can easily hold 100 guests for a sit-down dinner, 200 for a meeting and 275 for a buffet.
