Grand Curtius

Recommended

This group of museums occupies a cluster of buildings dating from the 16C-18C, the most emblematic of which is Curtius Palace (16C). A fine example of the Renaissance Mosan style, with its red bricks and cross-mullioned windows, it was commissioned by Jean Curtius, a wealthy arms dealer for the Spanish armies. In addition to its splendid Gallo-Roman collections, the Archaeology Department houses the precious Evangeliary of Notger. The Religious Art and Mosan Art Department charts the evolution of religious art in the diocese of Liège since the Early Middle Ages. The museum also has departments dedicated to weapons, decorative arts and glass, not forgetting the Donation Baron and Baronne François Duesberg, whose clock and table art collections occupy the palace's state apartments.
