The museum contains a number of artifacts and exhibits displaying various aspects of life in and around Liege. I was able to tour in a little over one hour.

We spent two hours in this museum because there is so much to see and learn. Highlights are the clay sculptures by Léopold Harzé, the documentation on how Wallonia came to be and their nostalgic toys exhibition. Word of advice: ask for a free audio-guide.

I'm an American who was a French minor in college -- 20 years ago. Much of my fluency has evaporated, but I enjoyed la Musee de al Vie Wallonne immensely. A little background: Belgium is split culturally between a Dutch north (Flanders) and a French...More
