It is only 2 euros entrance fee and there are 3 floors of amazing exhibits. It was like a tardis the rooms just kept going on from one to another.
You could spend all day there, there was so much to see crammed in every corner. It is not necessary to know any french as a lot of the exhibits are self explanatory. But to understand the amusing cartoons all over the museum you will have to call upon your school days french.
Interesting point if you need the toilets, they are under the puppet show exhibit hidden under red curtains, so you can come out the toilets with a theatrical exit!

Much bigger inside than it looks from the outside. A marvellous collection, painstakingly collected and displayed. I am not usually a museam person, disliking looking at old coins, broken pottery, swords and armour and musty old clothes but this is different. I really enjoyed it. (also worth noting that, although entrance is inexpensive, museums are free on the first Sunday of each month - something that would be worth noting for families visiting more than one museum.)

We spent a fascinating one hour and half ( not long enough ) viewing this mix of local culture, industry and history. It clearly demonstrated the regional importance that Tournai had held in the past.
The staff were very courteous and helpful with our enquiries. We will certainly return when we next visit Tournai and spend longer viewing the exhibits.
