First Sunday of the month
On the first Sunday of every month admission to the museum is free.
Today, the museum boasts more than 7,000 items, including the original statue of Manneken-Pis. Paintings, altarpieces, tapestries, earthenware, porcelain, plans, scale-models, sculptures, city maps,... tell the tempestuous but fascinating story of our city. Beloved symbol of Brussels residents, the original statue of Manneken-Pis is exposed on the last floor, whereas his precious wardrobe (GardeRobe) can be discovered at Rue du Chêne - 19, nearby the fountain.
