We went there on the first Sunday of the month, on the first Sunday of the month all museums are free in Liege. Some people paid for the special exhibition but the permanent exhibition is free of charge on this day. It is not big but there were some works by Picasso, for example. If it is free then why not. The museum looks very nice from outside.

Great rainy day or sunny day activity! The permanent and rotating exhibitions are not so overwhelming that you cannot do them both in a couple of hours. The prices are very reasonable and the staff helpful. Nestled in a pretty park, the museum is accessible by foot from the main part of the city.

I didn't pick the best day as there was a strike affecting government employees - as a result only part of the museum was open, but it was really excellent. The building is a mix of the original museum and a modern extension with a lot of viewing space. The exhibition itself (Costa Lefkochir) was very good and the works come over much better is real life than in photographs.

To be fair, half of the exhibits were missing or they were awaiting a new exhibition, but our trip here was something of a waste of time with so little to see to justify the taxi fare over.

The art on show is eclectic to say the least, but it doesn't quite work having so many disperate works of art together in such close proximity.

There are one or two highlights - I won't spoil the surprise, but don't feel bad if you don't make it over.

It was the first time I visited this museum. The building is very beautiful, it lies in a small park. I came here for the exhibition of Andy Warhol. What a nice experience! He's famous for his pop art, but there were also drawings, clothes, book covers, photos .... The historic info was also great. And the music!! Loved it!

La Boverie, pleasantly set in a riverfront park, hosts Liège's art collection as well as large temporary exhibitions. This review concerns only the small permanent collection, as I did not visit the current large Hyperrealism exhibition, having seen a similar exhibit in Germany last year. The permanent collection, downstairs on the ground floor, has a few fine things: In particular, one of the great scatological mask-and-skeleton paintings by Belgium's own James Ensor. But also, I was very surprised indeed to find Picasso's large early portrait of the Soler family. Those are the two biggies, at least for me. Plus, very good works by the two surrealist greats, Magritte and Delvaux, and individual pieces by Corot, Pissarro, Signac, van Dongen, Monet, Kokoschka, Marie Laurencin, Gauguin, and others, maybe not of the highest quality, but it was nice to see them. An hour happily spent.

Within walking distance from the Guillemins station ; La Boverie. I visited the Warhol exhibition today and it was exquisit. Great build up of the exhibition with time framing. Must see when you’re in Liege.

Bought the ticket at the entrance and went through security checkpoints by the door (scanned!). As I came back up from the basement level I was stopped by a security personnel and asked if I got in using a valid ticket (hello, if not did I just crawl through a drainage from the basement?) he insisted to escort me back to the checkpoint and have my ticket scanned again, the conductor by the checkpoint looked confused also as i was the only Asian inside the museum and he actually recognized me and gave a strange look to his colleague also, and of course, my ticket was a valid one. Duh.
Anyway, great exhibition with artists such as Van Gogh and Paul signac.
