  • If you're into your arts this is a good visit. If not we found it interesting and actually evidenced the old use of the river and its waters for trade in the 1800's  more »
  • The museum houses a good collection of Flemish and Dutch art, and a very good collection impressionists and post-impressionists. Most rooms have a very nice display, but information is very limited.  more »

  • My visit to the Musee Des Beaux-Arts was just perfect, in fact I returned the next day to take a second look (ticket runs for 48 hours) What a collection. Also the building is so well designed it fits right in with the artwork display. Excellent collection of ‘Local Art’ too.
  • Lovely museum, spaceous, luminous. The expo we visited was very well put together.
