COVID-19 - Update
Temporary closure on the first Saturdays of the month of the State Archives in Arlon, Liège, Mons and Namur

Due to the Covid 19 crisis, the State Archives are forced to temporarily adjust their services on Saturdays. So far, four reading rooms were open to the public on the first Saturday of the month: in Mons, Namur, Liège and Arlon. For the next four months, the reading rooms in the aforementioned State Archives will also be closed on the first Saturday of the month. This means September 5th , October 3rd, November 7th and December 5th. A possible reopening at the beginning of 2021 will be communicated in good time. Thank you for your understanding.

30/10/2018 - Digitisation

The State Archives holds a real treasure of cartographic materials, but handing out original maps and plans in the reading rooms bears the risk of deteriorating the state of conservation of these documents. Indeed, repeated unrolling and rolling-up of these maps and plans that are sometimes of considerable size has taken its toll on the documents, which called for a large-scale digitization campaign. In recent years, some 60,000 maps and plans were digitised. This number increases steadily. Roughly 44,000 of these digital images have been processed and are now available for research.

In order to let the general public discover the rich archival heritage on the First World War, the State Archives launched a new dedicated website in August 2014: It is filled with a variety of interesting documents, including letters, posters, photographies, minutes, etc. The website is in French.
