Exhibition “Our Common Heritage”

An ambitious and unifying project, the exhibition “Our Common Heritage” in Boulaide takes an original and completely new approach to the history lived in the cross-border territories of the Greater Region, whose imprint still marks the current geopolitical context.

The open air exhibition is installed permanently in Boulaide.
In front of the municipality, “Our Common Heritage” can be visited free of charge.
It is open from Monday to Friday from 10 am to 5 pm and from Saturday to Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm.
Address: 3, rue de la Mairie L-9640 Boulaide

This exhibition offers to immerse oneself in the key events of these decades of the 20th century that shaped Europe while highlighting the local history of the Greater Region whose perimeter extends over 4 countries: Belgium, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, Germany and France.
“Our Common Heritage” thus traces the experience of the populations in the cross-border territories from the Belle Epoque to the creation of Europe. This cross-reading of our history in the Greater Region is unprecedented and original.
Giant photo albums provide visitors with international historical landmarks before showing how civilian and military life in the Grande Région has evolved over the decades, highlighting our similarities and differences.
The immersive experience, offered in a converted container, gives way to strong emotion thanks to the sound and visual universe created for this extraordinary historical retrospective.

In order to help teachers to best prepare their visits to this exhibition, the project partners wished to provide them with a pedagogical manual. This includes worksheets that can be downloaded and distributed to students during the visit and that will help them, in a fun and participatory way, to understand the topics discussed in the exhibition.

This free exhibition is accessible to everyone, including people with reduced mobility (PRM).

A quiz to stimulate your curiosity during your visit to the exhibition can be found here.
