About Musee Hospice Comtesse, Lille
A poorhouse that has long been given the kindly recognition of a hospice, the place is now a museum that documents it’s own history and the socio-political history of Lille from the 13th to the 18th Century. The managers have retained the warren-like feel of the place, an effect carried over from it’s very beginning – when in 1237, Jeanne, Countess of Flanders established the building. On the ground floor you’ll find the recreated medieval Flemish House and Hospital. There’s also an art collection featuring paintings from the 17th and 18th century. Other exhibits include ceramics, earthenware wall tiles, religious art.

Nice little museum for very cheap ticket price. It will be better to visit when they have extra exhibition going on. The audio guide is a must to understand this place.
This place consists of two separate buildings. A building with a permanent collection of how the nuns lived back in the day, and a gorgeous old church which houses a temporary collection. Both are well worth a visit, especially given the cheap entry price.
Very cool and well laid museum in Lille. Definitely worth a walk around.
Check for the days whe they have expositions, I'll make the more interesting!
A great little immersive museum well maintained and transports to to Flanders of old. In an ideal world they would do guided tours in English to help you digest more of whats on show.
