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

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.
