The 17th century building only is totally worth a visit. It is beautiful. I have not visited the permanent collection for a while but I have been to a few of their temporary shows, that are always interesting and well displayed. Last time we were there, they had a painting workshop for kids, so they could experiment with "photographismes" or... More

Beautiful buildings on a hill, by huge steps (no you don't need to walk up the steps :-)). Interior design of the bar/restaurant is very trendy and original.

No plan but the visit takes you chronologically through Liege's history. That means that you start with prehistory and Graeco-Roman finds. Less about recent history except for Ysaye's (Violinist-composer) study and a couple of grand rooms. A collection of glass and an armoury in a separate wing. Some attractive courtyards so well worth a visit even if much of the... More

This museum shows an impressive collection of the history Liège and its surroundings. Starting at the early beginning (paleolithicum) over the Romans, middle ages (Noget, Lotharingen) to the Renaissance and beginning of this century. A lot of artefacts are put in exposition, preview at least 1 1/2h. Our children are 14 and 16 of age, which can be considered as... More

There is no clear answer to the question "what kind of museum is "Le musée Curtius"?". I have the opinion that it should be considered as a museum of decorative arts with a small section of archeology. When I revisited this museum, I felt that I was in mini belgian version of the Victorian & Albert museum of London. You... More

We found this museum by chance. What a find! I am particularly interested in glass and they have an ama-zi-ng collection. Ranging from early Roman to Lalique and Daum and some beautiful modern stuff. They have other things like paintings and arms and militaria but the glass was the highlight for me.

A large and comprehensive museum that covers the region's history from prehistoric times, with a special focus on Mosane art. It's also got a very impressive collection of arms, and a glass museum within. Not to be missed, is a room on the Liegeois musician, which plays his compositions and visitors can literally smell the furniture in the re-creation of... More

I was really impressed by this museum. I wasn't expected such a diversity of collections. The Archeological Section and the Glass Collection are really impressive. The collection of clocks, which is donated by Baron Duesberg is beautiful! I also recommend to visit his museum in Mons!
