Granite Center–Stone Worlds – Time of Stone – Time of Man

The Granite Center tells both the history of granite and the history of people working with it.

A visionary building awaits you and puts the ‘gemstone’ granite into the spotlight. Modern media and exciting mise-en-scenes take visitors on a journey back into Earth’s deep history. Old traditions of stonemasonry have been brought back to life: from an unshaped block of granite to the finished product.

A reconstructed massive quarry landscape shows the hard work of a stonecutter in old times. A rustic mason’s canteen provides an inviting resting place where you can also bring your own snack.

Experience close up how mountain ranges form and disappear, oceans come and go, plants and creatures conquer the land and how natural desasters make the earth shake.
