  • We discovered this Museum a little by chance and were surprised at the richness of the exposed collections! A true treasure! Too bad that this museum is dedicated to disappear shortly: the owner is old and tired and the authorities seem not very interested to take this exceptional heritage! A lack of ambition and foresight! Parts are therefore likely to be scattered to the four corners of the world. Discover urgently so!

  • Collection that honors the Belgium, but that lack of interest on the part of local politicians and given the great age of the owners, seems to take a very painful way. Why not protect and preserve this heritage, which is coveted by so many other countries. We must save this place wonderful, great.

  • Vacationing in Mons, we went to visit the Museum by chance François Duesberg. It was simply beautiful, a beautiful eulogy of the Napoleonic era, works of art out of the ordinary in excellent condition. We had the chance to meet with the curator of the Museum, who us very kindly about the past of his works, a man highly tuned and passionate about this time. For only € 8/person. A real pleasure, we will be back!

  • I. THE ART OF TIME AND THE ART OF THE TABLE CONJUGATE IN THE EXCELLENCE OF CRAFT AT THE SERVICE OF BEAUTY AND GOOD! What a joy to be able to contemplate so many splendours, gathered by a patron and a scholar of watchmaking art and the art of the table: watches and clocks, bronzes finely ornate, Golden or not, real jewels to ancient, mythological themes, to the glory of the work force in the colonies, to the glory of poetry, of literature or the arts. These masterpieces which are probably the largest collection of its kind in the world are as many testimonies of the best architects of the time and the most talented craftsmen under the 'Ancien Régime' and the Napoleonic era (about 1750-1820). In addition to the clocks, the Baron and Baroness Duesberg highlight music in shimmering showcases what Goldsmith of art had to offer in order to remind the good memory of the visitor as the charming little of Mons, capital European city of culture 2015, was also once an exceptional Goldsmith Center. From porcelain to services Royal, worthy of the best show offered by the art of the table 'to the French', crystals, jewelry - the cameos of the Baroness -, and a host of small valuable items and the various 'oddities' as well as some antique furniture, or even a fine collection of books and prints, are available to the senses of the visitors marveled... II. Sterling VOOR HET OOG - Kunstzinnig meten van tijd in 'art of the table' op zijn Frans... Een wondermooie in wereldbefaamde body van kostbare klokken, verguld brons, tafelservies, zilver, porcelein, kristal, every in curiosa... ITU Frankrijk, period einde 'Ancien Régime' - eerste keizerrijk, 'Empire stijl' (zegmaar 1790-1820). Deze real 'schat' didn't we'll thank effort in expertise van een verzamelaar verwoed aan. Het levenswerk van baron in Baronesses François Duesberg verdient een special dankbetuiging in is beslist een bezoek waard! III. A MOST EXCITING TREASURE highlighting French fine art, period + / 1790-1820, Rare timepieces, precious clocks & watches as well highly collectible silver, china, stemware, jewelry, various fine 'art objects' are on display in this unique museum thanks to the dedication of - and daily care and maintenance by baron and baroness François Duesberg. A life time achievement which deserves our deep respect and admiration!

Where to stay in Mons

Despite its close proximity to the capital, Mons attracts enough visitors in its own right to offer a small variety of accommodation options. You'll find mostly small, independent hotels clustered in the compact city center and, if you look carefully, a modest selection of low-budget lodgings. To cut costs, consider staying in Brussels and making the short trip by train for the day.
