The Monday we visited, not the only reason to go by any means, the space was designed by Victor Horta as an exhibition space for an extensive collection of art. Dating from 1928, it has an Asian Room with Chinese furniture and wallpaper, as well as glassware, silverware, and porcelain. The collection also contains sculpture, portraits, and tapestries. A beautiful... More

This small museum, situated in an old town house, gives visitors a delightful insight into the life of a wealthy Belgian in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The museum is centrally located near the underground station of Madou. Because the Charlier Museum is not well-known, there aren’t many tourists crowding the place which allows for a more interesting... More

Sometimes, one of the most important elements in a museum or a gallery is the atmosphere you can find there. Such is the case in this small but fabulous museum which houses collections of porcelain, silverware, furniture, chinoiserie and paintings etc. Much of interest, therefore, for the enquiring mind. This was not my first visit to the museum. I like... More

As some of you may already have noticed, I’m really into architecture, private collections, not to mention the Palace and Museum craziness! So, I did (well, my boyfriend did) find this amazing house to visit in Brussels and there I went! It is an amazing house, architecturally speaking, with amazing rooms, well designed and proportionate! And the collection, that once... More

We visited on a Monday and were greeted by a very friendly and helpful young lady. It is a small museum but has plenty of artworks and sculptures to enjoy.

Nice house musem on 2 levels. Interesting paintings and scultures. It takes more or less 30 minutes to visit it all. I expected something bigger.

I love old house museums because you can see artifacts in context and imagine how people lived. The Charlier House is a large 19th Century Townhouse near the downtown. It offers an interesting collection of late 19th Century furniture procelain and paintings. The owner was a client of Victor Horta who merged two houses together to create the Charlier House....

This stylish townhouse is one of the small gem-museums in Brussels. It is not so well known, so probably you’ve got the museum to yourself. It was a delight walking around the rooms filled with furniture, paintings, sculptures, silverware and china from the late 19th century. Also beautiful chandeliers and old-fashioned clocks. The interior of the house was converted by... More

This is a two-story museum with many rooms full of antique furniture, art, and collectibles. What I love most is that you can walk around and see things close up as they are not behind glass, velvet ropes, and alarms. I would not come with small children for that reason, but it is divine if you love antiquities. There is... More
