There are only a few rooms in this museum but the contents are beautiful. The intricate carving on some of the exhibits is amazing, so delicate. For me the highlight is the sculpture by the Maitre de Waha

We’re well accustomed to visiting museums all over the US and Europe. The busy-bodies here followed us around making sure we “ne touché pas.” Far below the kind of hospitality we are used to. The collection is okay. Small.

Small museum, but packed full of nice stuff, from paintings and sculptures to beautiful metalwork. I really enjoyed our visit. Totally worth the €3 fee.

Filled with goodies that never found their way into the Louvre. Namur is everything good about Paris without the rudeness and the poodle poo.

What a lovely little museum, on the ground floor some exquisitely detailed metal work, some lovely wood carvings and some interesting paintings, well worth a visit.,
