We didn't visit the museum out of interest for the collection - ancient and medieval history, a lot about the prince-bishops of Liege - but for the buildings. The museum is huge, in parts very well modernized and in parts inaccessable due to renovations. Signs...More

A fantastic collection of arms, glass works, coins and ancient history. Any one of the collections is worth the visit and to top it off they are all housed in a magnificent building in which Napoleon stayed twice. This is the city of gunmakers and...More

Absolutely fabulous and extensive collections with a particular beautifull and important collection of woodden polychrome religious sculptors dating back to the Middle Ages, and all the details of the previous principaute de Liege, its political and social structure long before the first constitution. Impressive!

This museum is huge, with a vast collection of historic weapons, glass-work, furniture, paintings, etc... Most of the information on the plaques is only in French though. Seeing everything is going to take about 1.5 hours. Every first Sunday of the month, the entrance is...More

The medieval art collection is one of the best anywhere ... This is a gem ! Go and visit nearby the magnificent romanesque Saint Barthelemy church with its famous basptismal font !

This is by far a top quality museum worth at least two visits as it's very large. The displays are wonderful and explanations for some displays in multiple languages. You may also have an audio tour( for a fee) but I found it more enjoyable...More
