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.
