The Sphinxpassage is a free, permanent exhibition that embodies the history of the Sphinx factories and the Eiffel building. Approximately 30,000 tiles arranged into 26 chapters recounts the history of both the ceramics industry in Maastricht and the Regout family. This impressive storytelling exhibition was created by using a mix of tableware, designs, old adverts, family portraits, and old transfer prints (a method of decorating enamels or ceramics). The imposing tiled wall is 120 metres long and five metres high, making it the largest of its kind in the Netherlands. The Sphinx passage is situated in the middle of the old Sphinx factories on Boschstraat.
