Brussels through the ages.

Dating from 1887, this museum was founded with the desire to create a local museum that bears witness to the rich history of the city. The City Museum, housed in the King's House on the Grand Place has a double objective: to inform visitors about the city, and to make the city's history accessible and understandable to the people of Brussels.
Discover its varied collections that are the result of donations, archaeological excavations and varied collections of objects and works of art.
On the ground floor you can find an overview of art in Brussels; the first floor is meanwhile dedicated to the layout and architecture of the city.
The top floor is reserved for the extensive wardrobe of Manneken Pis, and is also used for temporary exhibitions.
