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

there was something for everyone here. it surprised me how much I liked the weaponry, and the glass section was stunning. the building itself is beautiful. there was a waterloo display when we went, which was impressive in a way but not our cup of tea. I would for sure visit again.

The Curtius Museum (Musée Curtius) is a museum of archaeology and decorative arts, located on the bank of the Meuse River in Liège, classified as a Major Heritage of Wallonia. Great museum with an excellent overview of Belgian history from prehistoric era to post WW2! Many diverse and well-put-together informative exhibits. Staff is very welcoming and helpful.

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
