    It was the first time I visited this museum. The building is very beautiful, it lies in a small park. I came here for the exhibition of Andy Warhol. What a nice experience! He's famous for his pop art, but there were also drawings, clothes, book covers, photos .... The historic info was also great. And the music!! Loved it!

    Nice exhibition, beautiful building with modern extensions. Management does a lot of efforts to explain and show past and present history.

    Friendly English speaking staff and detailed audio guide in English. The exhibits are well kept and many of them can be boarded and played with. Only a small museum though.

    We got lost for a few minutes at the beginning (there's a glass door that you go in after going down a set of stairs). After we got our bearings, we saw a lot of interesting exhibits about artifacts found in Liege. They were color-coded depending on how old they were. Some dated from prehistoric times!

    Located underneath the Place Saint-Lambert, it's a nice distraction. Archaeology admittedly isn't my favorite, but I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

    The guide was interesting and enjoyable. The place is not for people with fear of height or difficulties with steep stairs. The explanations were clear and interesting and our guide had a good sense of humor. The building is beautiful. Overall absolutely worth it.

    Il’s a nice for jogging in the country. I can’t say you have to go for the openair museum. But it’s a nice place to relax.

    The puppet museum is the essence of Liège. See a show (in French or Wallon (french dialect)). Older than Punch and Judy and very unusual.

    This museum is fairly small, but you will need some time for the guided tour by the enthusiastic owner, who wrote a book on the history of light. He takes you through the different stages of lighting, with candles, oil lamps, improved oil lamps, street lanterns, petrol lamps, clock-based fuel-release mechanisms, improved wind-up mechanisms, and finally light bulbs. His Dutch was good enough to make me understand most, my French good enough to pick up a little more.

    This is a beautiful 18 century house that is very large and has some of the most beautiful tiles i have seen
    Unfortunately the city has not taken good care of it
    One can only visualize what life was for it’s own

    A small museum which tries to provide an overview of the industrial history of Liege and the surrounding area. The star exhibit is an ancient forge and associated machinery from the 17th & 18th centuries. Sadly the museum is not well laid out for telling what ought to be a fascinating story of industrial growth, development and decline over many hundreds of years. Useful to visit as a starting point for understanding the city. Strange that the featured local electrical pioneer Zénobe Gramme should give his name to a unit of weight.

    I already reviewed this museum and cafe in the past. At that moment renovation was announced, but it had not started yet. At the moment (july 2017) the whole place is closed and a major renovation is ongoing. Reopening is announced for 2019. During the renovation, the society behind the museum has moved temporarely elsewhere, mainly for the library function.

    This museum is the house where composer André Grétry was born in 1741. A prolific composer of operas, he was most successful in France during the Monarchy, Revolution and Empire.

    While not much is left from such an amazing life, the house is definitely worth a visit (open Friday-Sunday) as it has been perfectly renovated and retain the old fashioned charm of the ancient Liège.

    The museum displays some manuscripts, busts, personal belongings. It deserves to be better known.
