Le musee de la ville is a nice sport when you go to Grand Place, but nothing more. After being in one of the best squares of the world, you would expect something more. The museum is relatively small, in about an hour you see everything. There is everything inside, it seems like they put together all the stuff that... More

It's an UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with the rest of the square. Built from 1504 up to 1536 by the Duke of Brabant, at the site of the first bread and cloth markets. The bread market gave...

We did not go in (closed that day) but enjoyed food and the bands. This is a good meeting place and just learning about the area from the outside.

I called in to pass a few hours before my Eurostar departure. Not the biggest museum, but decently curated. The building itself is a work of art - gothic in style, and despite the limitations of an eighteenth century building (the original was destroyed by the French bombardment of Brussels in 1695), the displays were well presented - including hundreds...

Had passed this place hundreds of times without going in but as it was raining thought why not. The interior is amazing and it's nice wandering around the different rooms and up and down the impressive stairwells which are lined with beautiful stained glass windows. Some of the old statues are brilliant and there are lots of tapestries, paintings and... More

Could be so much more. The highlight is the manneken pis uniforms from around thr the world. Better museum choices elsewhere on Brussels.

An impressive Gothic building, the building provided the Grand Place! It is the house of the king which today hosts the Museum of the City of Brussels

I found this museum very informative on the town's history and especially during the War. It is not crowded so you can have time to read and view every item on display. Very interesting section of the Manneken Pis in various dress, especially the ones representing various countries. Worth a visit.

Several floors high with art history and building sculptures of the history of Brussels. It is very informative in telling the history of Brussels and it's importance throughout history. There is even a weird doll collection dressed in various outfits.
