    For years, I went every day in front of the Museum Constantin Meunier, the Abbey Street. But alas, the curator then preferred to keep house for him alone, and never I don't found it open. Other times... Fortunately! Now, the Museum is accessible every day, wide hours and you are welcomed by a guard more than competent, friendly and enthusiastic! Each will be seen in Belgium and elsewhere, one or the other work of Miller, a sculptor whose glory, at the beginning of the 20th century, was truly universal, Berlin to the Japan. Today, Rodin seems to have overshadowed him, and it's unfair for an artist major and which, moreover, has played a crucial role in denouncing the living conditions of the workers in Belgium in the second half of the 19th century. The Museum shows a significant number of his best-known sculptures (the puddleur or the upsetting horse of mine), even if some masterpieces, such as the methane, must be admired at the Royal Museums of fine arts of Belgium. These imposing statues of workers and miners are beautifully displayed in the workshop which saw their development. The discovery extends to his graphic and pictorial work that strikes by its diversity, as by its modernity: some designs ahead of German and Viennese expressionism. A small regret: none of his works inspired by Wagner is exposed. A beautiful moment of poetry and reflection, in the home of the artist, bright, peaceful and warm.

    This museum, whose entrance is completely free, is a real splendor. Miller, who goes from painting to sculpture, and vice versa. Shows women and men in their labors hard and painful and with a lot of emotions. Yes the end of the 19th century workers asked to often too. No I'm not proletarian but past see it and you will see things differently

    A beautiful museum that reflects the great artist was Constantin Meunier. He had the art to do the hard work of the life of his time and deserves to be recognized for this. Must see!

    Small museum dedicated to Constantin Meunier. Beautiful works. Good trip. And more free.

    Quiet museum, limited to the last 20 years of Meunier's life, but with impressive images, drawings and paintings. A MUST for whom the world of social realism, late 19th century, wants to doorvoelen. Unfortunately the museum (now, 2013) closed in the weekends.
