    The collections of this museum are varied and interesting... Enlightening information are given... A few however closed rooms... Let's say that this museum meets the pleasures of museums! It will be more difficult with small children... image some antique of Apamea

    Huge museum. Best do you do one visit per room/theme. Would you like to see all at once then you put quick 2 days left. Some rooms are beautifully renovated, others seem what oudbolliger. When I was there, one was next to the halls refresh (and so not accessible): art-nouveau, one wing of the Egyptian Hall, one wing of the antiquity, Oceania, Philippines, Easter Island, and perhaps even some other. There is always a temporary exhibition (= extra). During the afternoon of the 1st Wednesday of the month is the admission to the permanent collection free. You can also do a tour along the main museum pieces (indicated by a yellow logo with ' must ' on). So there are a 100-tal. The portion to the right of the entrance is about Belgian history from prehistoric times to the renaissance. To the left there is a division of baroque to art-nouveau (entrance at the museum shop). Verderdoor the non-European civilizations.
