  • Didn't get in. Was locked before closing time.
  • Très beau musée qu'il faut absolument visiter à Mons. L'exposition de nombreux objets liés à l'horlogerie, tous plus beaux les uns que les autres, vaut le détour. On y découvre un très grand nombre d'horloges extraordinaires, des montres et bien d'autres choses liées à la mécanique de précision. La collection de Monsieur Duesberg est tout simplement époustouflante. Merci au propriétaire pour sa gentillesse.
  • Superbe musée avec une collection magnifique. Dommage que le propriétaire soit un mufle prétentieux.
