But then I understand it's recently had a 13 year, multimillion euro restoration so it should be good. Unusual for the region in the sense that's it's stone fronted (built by the Spanish in the 16thC?) and very attractive too. Good value (4 or 5 euro a person) and quite extensive, well air conditioned (maybe a bit cold? Good for the art?) and some really nice pieces. There was an exhibition of Flemish painting on when we were there but from the look of it the permanent collection is pretty good too. All that said I'm not really a museum/gallery sort of person so we didn't see all of the place by any means, but I was impressed. We got to a huge and frankly stunning painting by Francis Tattegrain (http://museedeflandre.cg59.fr/en/Collections/30masterpieces/01.aspx) and after that I didn't really need to see anything else. Worth a visit just for that painting in my opinion.
