This is by far a top quality museum worth at least two visits as it's very large. The displays are wonderful and explanations for some displays in multiple languages. You may also have an audio tour( for a fee) but I found it more enjoyable to utilize my limited French language skills. For a single adult it's 9Euros well worth... More

If you are interested in Ancient Egypt or Rome, this would be the best place for you. They also have an amazing collection of weapons, so don't miss that!!

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.
