Situated on the most beautiful square in the world, the City Museum invites you to discover the history of Brussels: a maquette illustrating the city in the 13th century, tapestries, ceramics, masterpieces of painting and sculpture… On the top floor, the Grand-Place tells its story through unique works of art such as the original weathervane of Saint Michael. And it is also in the City Museum that you can admire the real statue of Manneken-Pis! The most important work in the collection is undoubtedly the building that houses the museum, a neo-gothic building dating from the last quarter of the 19th century, located opposite the Town Hall. Called the King’s House in French (Maison du Roi) – in reference to the owners of the premises, the Dukes of Brabant and then Charles V in the 16th century – it is known as the Broodhuis in Dutch – referring to the bread market that occupied the premises in the Middle Ages.
