Exhibition

09 May 2020 - 31 October 2020 : 09.30 - 17.30

On May 11, 1940, St. Peter's Church was hit by a few incendiary shells. At the end of the fire, only the walls and a few pieces of furniture and works of art remained. That was 80 years ago.

This 2020 exhibition of the "80/70 Commemorations" unveils - or reminds the older visitors - what the building was like before it was destroyed, a church that had lived 637 years without destruction and which, in fact, had accumulated furniture and decoration made even more special because of the very particular dimensions of the building. The exhibition is open free of charge from May 9, 2020 to April 30, 2021.
