Brussels City Museum

The Brussels City Museum (French: Musée de la ville de Bruxelles / Dutch: Museum van de Stad Brussel) is dedicated to the folklore and history of the city of Brussels from its origin until today. The museum is composed of paintings, sculptures, tapestries, engravings, pictures and models (including one of the city in the Middle Ages). A room of the Museum is also dedicated to the 900 costumes of Manneken-pis.

The Brussels City Museum is located on the Grand Place in the King’s House / Bread House (French: Maison du Roi / Dutch: Broodhuis), just in front of the Town Hall. This neo-Gothic building from the last quarter of the 19th is also one the most important work of the collection of the museum. So the building by himself deserve the visit.
