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.,

“Varied, lovely collections”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Perhaps now most well known for the fabulous 13th century silverware Trésor d'Oignies (see separate TripAdvisor entries), there is much else to see at this lovely provincial museum: from some amazing wood sculpture altar pieces (one in particular - I speak from an artistic, not religious perspective), great brassware, interesting 16th century paintings (watch out for the repeated motif in those by Bles) and much more that one would more or less expect. Panels on the ground floor give much of the background (I think only in French). None of it is too extensive and so one can cover quite a bit of variety in a 1-1½ hours.

We also visited the temporary exhibition of more modern art in the gallery at the roadside end of the courtyard, which was well worth doing and provided a good contrast.

The museum is right off one of the min shopping roads in the centre of Namur.
