Art Museum · Museum
The Charlier Museum (French: Musée Charlier) is a museum in Saint-Josse-ten-Noode, a neighbourhood of Brussels, exhibiting Belgian art of the end of the 19th century.
The current museum building was bought by an art collector Henri Van Cutsem in 1890. Van Cutsem hired Victor Horta, a famous architect, to remodel and extend the building. The renovation in the Art Nouveau style was completed in 1893. In 1904, Van Cutsem died and left the house to a sculptor Guillaume Charlier, who died in 1925 and in his will requested that the house and the collection be opened as a public museum. The museum was opened in 1928.
The museum is often used for concerts of classical music.

  • A true gem! Small but extraordinary. Chinese cabinet is particularly beautiful!
  • Small museum in the territory of Saint-Josse. Parking is available nearby in parking law. Not accessible for wheelchair users. Art and furniture from around 1900. Part of the house has been renovated by Horta. There are varying exhibitions. If you are lucky, there is a Dutch-speaking staff member. Very quiet to visit. The museum trektnietzo many people.
