This is a very nice museum; a large building in a huge park; so many historical items from around the world, but.... there were two major negative points about this museum; firstly, almost nothing in English!!! all items have descriptions in (I think) French and...More

We went to visit the sarcophagi exhibition which was really nice & entertaining (special kids track). Pity the app (for smartphone) that should replace the audioguide did not work. After this we went to visit the permanent collection, shock could not be bigger. You really...More

I enjoyed this museum - lots of history. Unfortunately, there was almost no English, so unless you can read French or Dutch, I recommend trying to get an audioguide. The museum was not crowded, which was really nice.

At first we have entered the museum only for one and half an hour, but it was impossible to see everything interesting in that time frame, so we have stayed until the closing time. Definitely is worth to see the exhibition, it was very spectacular...More

We discovered this huge and nearly empty museum while exploring the nearby Cinquantenaire Monument that dominates the skyline. This museum was completely empty unlike the crowded Royal Arts Museum. It is filled with historical treasures, and you should definitely add it to your list of...More
