  • It is a museum beside the Brussels race Brussels crafts and clothes using it mainly. You can learn about the clothes, until recently a modern outfit. Belgium traditions and how wonderful experience working with the race to the children, because they can touch.

  • some seasonal exhibitions run here. While I was visiting , the theme was wedding dresses and costumes for other participants like bride maids in every detail. but I think they need to have a permanent exhibition for national costumes as well.
  • I had to run through the museum fairly quickly because of a time restraint. The gowns were beautiful to look at, and the detail on some was amazing. I was hoping to learn more about lace, it's history in Belgium, and how it is meticulously made. I don't know if that section was closed off, missing, or I just didn't see it.
  • Great exhibition on wedding traditions and costumes since the 19th century. Free for people living in Brussels.
  • Not very big
  • Every first Sunday of the month the Museum is free for which complain about the price (€8) bath don't go on Sunday. I spent at least an hour and a half in the Museum with our guide, but without a guide, I think that the Museum can be visited in 20 minutes what is not interesting.
