About the exhibition

The Brussels City Museum is located in the city’s historic centre, on the Grand Place, the most famous area of the capital. It is housed in a Neo-Gothic style building called Maison du Roi in French and Broodhuis in Dutch. The building itself is the museum’s greatest masterpiece, recognised as a national heritage site in 1936 (one of the first in Belgium), and, along with the Grand Place, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000.

Today, the museum boasts more than 7,000 items, including the original statue of Manneken Pis. Paintings, altarpieces, tapestries, earthenware, porcelain, plans, scale-models, sculptures, city maps,… tell the tempestuous but fascinating story of our city. Beloved symbol of Brussels residents, the original statue of Manneken Pis is exposed on the last floor, whereas his precious wardrobe (GardeRobe) can be discovered at Rue du Chêne 19, nearby the fountain.
