Well worth visiting. A large museum with an interesting collection of ethnic art works from round the world.

A combi ticket for the 3 museums inside the park is available for 15 € and is valid for 3 months. Tickets for the Horta-Lambeaux pavilion are also for sale over here. This museum is very quiet and you have the collection almost for yourself,...More

This museum is an odd mix of local interest (eg flour sacks from US WWI relief) and quirky but top notch exhibits. For some reason the pre-Columbian collection is superb - as good or better than the New York Metropolitan's. Who knew?
