Brussels City Museum is located on Grand-Place, the historic heart of the capital. It has over 7,000 exhibits telling the history of our city and the origins of Brussels’s best-known symbol: the Manneken-Pis statue.
Temporary exhibition until 11 March 2018 : Baudelaire – Brussels
At the end of his life, Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867) spent two years in Brussels, from 1864 to 1866. It was a time of bitterness, ill health and poverty that led the author of Les Fleurs du Mal to write a virulent lampoon, which wasn’t published in his lifetime. Pauvre Belgique!, an outpouring of the poet’s ill feeling towards Belgium, underpins this fascinating exhibition.
