I didn't love this museum, unfortunately - there is very limited information available in English, but more importantly all the exhibits feel very haphazard and disjointed. Understood that that is part of the legacy of the museum, but I've seen similar types of museums done better elsewhere. Worth checking to see if the temporary exhibits they have up are worth your interest at the time that you plan to visit, though.

The Monday we visited, not the only reason to go by any means, the space was designed by Victor Horta as an exhibition space for an extensive collection of art. Dating from 1928, it has an Asian Room with Chinese furniture and wallpaper, as well as glassware, silverware, and porcelain. The collection also contains sculpture, portraits, and tapestries. A beautiful staircase takes you among the several floors. Located on a very busy street, public transportation is your best bet to get here.

This small museum, situated in an old town house, gives visitors a delightful insight into the life of a wealthy Belgian in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The museum is centrally located near the underground station of Madou. Because the Charlier Museum is not well-known, there aren’t many tourists crowding the place which allows for a more interesting visit. Ask for a leaflet in English and take a leisurely tour of the place. If you enjoy old houses, objets d’art, paintings, and fine furniture, be sure to visit this gem in Brussels.

Sometimes, one of the most important elements in a museum or a gallery is the atmosphere you can find there. Such is the case in this small but fabulous museum which houses collections of porcelain, silverware, furniture, chinoiserie and paintings etc. Much of interest, therefore, for the enquiring mind. This was not my first visit to the museum. I like to go there regularly perhaps more for the atmosphere than anything else. The more I go the more part of me realises that, sooner or later, something will have to be done with regard to upgrading the place. Another part of me wants any refurbishments to be put off for as long as possible. If you are sensitive to atmospheres you will find yourself entering a world where time may not have stopped exactly but where it has certainly been slowed down...offering insights into how life must have been for the well-off of this neighbourhood at the turn of the last century. I think the word "soulful" wouldn't be out of place here. SO, should this place be upgraded, and, it does have to be, my concern would be that it might lose its atmosphere, lose its soul. Go...before any changes can be made. And just enjoy.

As some of you may already have noticed, I’m really into architecture, private collections, not to mention the Palace and Museum craziness! So, I did (well, my boyfriend did) find this amazing house to visit in Brussels and there I went! It is an amazing house, architecturally speaking, with amazing rooms, well designed and proportionate! And the collection, that once adorned the all house, is amazing! So, just for the architecture and the collection everybody should go there and invest a couple of hours in all this marvel. Of course now there’s the other side of the question, and the reason why such a house did not receive a 5-star review! Bear in mind that the house and the collection per se are close to perfection, however, it was the state of the place that did make feel a little bit sad! Although the furniture, paintings and diverse decorative objects are in an amazing state of preservation, the house is in daring need of some care! And most important of all, it does deserve it! I have no idea why the building has not been the focus of an intervention recently, but it should be, it is by itself a monument extraordinaire! Go there and dazzle yourself!
