Pierre au Ciment Centre

The permanent exhibition draws a sensitive portrait of the stones of the region, the history of the techniques, and that of the men who, from yesterday to today, have focused on this material.
This original site highlights the industrial heritage of stone and the expertise linked to it.

The Pierre au Ciment Centre is a museum dedicated to the history of the quarry basin in the Montalieu-Vercieu region

What is the common thread between the Empire State Building, the Imperial Palace of Tokyo, the Pantheon, and the Bridges of Lyon?
They were all built using Villebois stone!!
At the heart of the quarry basin, the Pierre au Ciment Centre presents the history of the region in an original way.
The interactive museum tour reveals all the secrets of the local stones, the history of the techniques, and the men who, from yesterday to today, have focused on this noble material. This economic sector is still flourishing, thanks in particular to Vicat Cements and the dozen stone extraction and quarrying companies still operating.
In spring, come and discover the new exhibition space dedicated to Cement!
Production of the materials, innovative research, social history, environmental questions...
New fun and interactive tools will be presented to trace the industrial journey of Cement and understand the great challenges of tomorrow.
Your visit of the Pierre au Ciment Centre is completed by that of the typical house which recreates the atmosphere of a stone worker's home in the mid-nineteenth century. Everyday life for these 'Pierreux' is illustrated by many previously unseen or unusual objects...
A catalogue of activities and educational workshops is available upon request.
