Curtius Museum has been restoerd during many years and now open to public in a very nice new place (entrance from Rue Feronstree). You may choose one part of the museum to visit in detail (take a guide or a visit organised by tourism office with a guide (take a dedicated one to art). A must. Very rich collections with... More

This is probably the highlight of the city, set in a very attractive complex of buildings the collection concentrates on local archaeology and history so if this is your interest it's well worth the time. No real stand out exhibits although some of the medieval wooden sculpture is very striking and as a bonus there's a decent little cafe on... More

This museum is really large, with many different collections. Most remarkable is the large collection of weapons from different eras and areas. Other sections are about glassware and about historic religious items. The Napoleonic coins are nice. Looking back at my pictures I also see nicely decorated rooms with luxury items, probably gold stuff - I forgot what that's about.... More

We went to Liege thinking we'd visit the Musée d'Armes, but we got so much more. The historic weapons have been incorporated into the Curtius, and what a magnificent home they now have. The wing housing the weapons collection (Liege has always been a small arms manufacturing center) also contains galleries exhibiting cut glass, another historic Liege specialty. Your ticket... More

This museum had an absolutely random collection of items from guns, knives and weapons to glassware, cutlery and religious statues! It was well worth going to with only €5 entry fee (student/OAP fee). Overall worth a visit! Worth noting that virtually nobody speaks English but doesn't affect the overall experience. Also put your bags in the lockers provided (free of... More

Huge museum with varied collections. It was worth the entry fee just to see the glass collection. If you want to see everything allow plenty of time.

We were amazed at the number if artifacts loceted in this museum, it was incredible. Was not too interested in the religious ones but was particularly interested in the history of Liege and the arms and weapons. Definitely a place to visit.

This is a big place with objects oriented more to historical storytelling than to having great works of art per se. Which was fine with me because I'm a traveler who likes to get really immersed in local history. There's an iphone-based guide (English is written only, no audio) that is very detailed and the combination of the broad collection... More

this is a great museum with a variety of displays. I particularly wanted to see the glass section and was not disappointed. The displays of glass were stunning. The staff were most helpful and were prepared to show us where to go. For the price it was very, very good value. We had lunch in the café and that was... More
