An exceptional archaeological site recognized by UNESCO
Housed in a green setting, the SILEX’S, Neolithic flint mines of Spiennes, allows you to understand all facets of this exceptional archaeological site, recognized by UNESCO in 2000.
The Silex’s is located in a green area. This site is a unique place to discover in groups: walks, nature exploration and archaeological discoveries. The Silex’s offers affordable rates for groups (from 10 people), as well as guided tours in French or in foreign languages. Downhill runs to the mines are also possible upon reservation!
People with specific needs
Parking and access reserved for people with reduced mobility, a museum on the ground floor and adapted toilets ensure that the Silex’s is accessible to a greater number.
To promote the exchange between the museum and the school around their common educational role, the Silex’s teams offer guided tours adapted to each grade (in French or in foreign languages), creative workshops to learn while having fun and events for schools throughout the year. Educational files are also available with the contents of the museum, documents, courses of exploitation in the classroom … To prepare you as well as possible for the visits, the entrance to the museum is free for teachers.
Offer your colleagues, employees or partners a rewarding moment of relaxation in a unique environment. Discover the digital space and the proposed collectibles and take advantage of the facilities available on the site for your conferences, receptions and other events.
