Museum Of Ixelles Reviews & Ratings
Great small museum, exhibition space. Enjoyed lots the Doisneau exhibition, last week anf still on. It'll be even better after renovations, starting in April 2018. This means it will be closed a few months, but worth the wait I think.
Unfortunately closed for renovation but very nice, small museum. Well worth a vist.
Nice but now closed for 3 years approx for renovations
An excellent little museum, with some surprisingly good pieces, and it's not too busy
I enjoyed this museum very much - the permanent exhibition (some impressionism, some art nouveau...) but also the temporary one which was on photo realism - something I would say I don't like but when I saw those masterpieces I changed my mind completely! Would love to visit again if there's something interesting.
