First Sunday of the month

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.

Study days

Study days

The conservation of the tapestry cartoon of Pieter Coecke,
The martyrdom of St.Paul

The restoration of a work of art is always a good opportunity to question artistic practice through interdisciplinary dialogue. In this respect, the restoration of the tapestry cartoon of the Martyrdom of St. Paul in the Brussels City Museum has kept its promise.
To mark the completion of the project "Recovery of an exceptional piece..", the City of Brussels, in cooperation with the Historic Monuments and Sites Department, is organising two study days on 2 and 3 October 2017.
