View on Belgian History

The BELvue Museum is small in space but large in scope, as it dutifully examines and presents Belgian history from independence onward. Learn about diverse topics such as the monarchy's struggle to find a place in the modern era, Belgium's involvement in World War II, and the problematic legacies of the colonial project in Africa. An English language guidebook and audio tours are available in this off-the-radar museum (although a knowledge of French will be helpful), and children's activities in multiple languages are provided. For history buffs, the BELvue Museum is a rewarding visit.
