Very small but nice. Only one room of lace was open when we visited but the cost was still 8 euro. Descriptions only available in French or Dutch.

Not a lot of content, the lace pieces are nice but €8 admission fee is a bit too much for what it shows

Beautiful but small museum, a wide range of things to look at- the lace room is incredible!

Small museum, interesting but not amazing

I had to run through the museum fairly quickly because of a time restraint. The gowns were beautiful to look at, and the detail on some was amazing. I was hoping to learn more about lace, it's history in Belgium, and how it is meticulously made. I don't know if that section was closed off, missing, or I just didn't see it.

Petit musée intéressant à visiter si vous êtes intéressé par les costumes et la dentelle ! Une petite salle consacrée à la dentelle, son historique plaisante et complète !

A very way to look at history - through clothes
