This lovely little museum is just off the central square of Lier. It has a small permanent collection along with paintings on long term loan from Antwerp. A must for fans of Bruegel.

No audio tour in English, but there was an explanation (several pages) about the "Proverbs" -- just love how Breughel depicts real life scenes and "sinners"......we spent...More
