Musee Wiertz - Review
Antoine Wiertz was a 19th century painter, sculptor and writer. He was one of the most controversial artists of his time, with bizarre themes and unusual painting methods. This museum, which houses a majority of his works, is part of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. Some have said Wiertz is the worst painter to have an exclusive a government-funded museum. That said, his works are certainly startling, and he was a prolific artist, painting many gigantic canvasses. Who knows, you may just like him.

Musee Wiertz, Brussels Reviews
Amazing museum with the most amazing host! He showed us the museum with such passion that made the visit a must see in Brussels!
A must see!!!! It is a hidden treasure in Belgium with amazing and huge pieces of art with a host that turns your visit into a magic one with his passion and wisdom and it is free!!!!
Lovely little museum. Not many visitors, silence. Interesting artworks! Could spend days there analysing the artworks and enjoying the silence and daylight coming through the roof. It was also for free. Definitely going back there. I love the place. Just one thing: some works are hung too high which makes it difficult to see them properly. A shame because those works are interesting too!
We stopped in on a whim to check it out, and the guy working at the museum essentially gave us a free guided tour. We were the only ones there and he gave us a ton of history and background on the paintings. It was really interesting, without being one of those annoying situations where someone won't stop following you. He was really helpful, and clearly had a passion for Wiertz. It's a small museum, so definitely worth a stop if you are in the EU area.
Small but Interesting and thought-provoking museum, worth a visit!
