Curtius Museum

The Curtius Museum (Musée Curtius) is a museum of archaeology and decorative arts, situated on the bank of the Meuse River in Liège, classified as a Major Heritage of Wallonia. The Curtius Museu was built between 1597 and 1610 as a private mansion for Jean Curtius, industrialist and munitions supplier to the Spanish army. With its alternating layers of red brick and natural stone, and its cross-mullioned windows, the building typifies the regional style known as the Mosan (or Meuse) Renaissance.

After a 50 million euro redevelopment the museum was reopened as the Grand Curtius (Le Grand Curtius) in 2009, housing the collections of the archaeology, weaponry, decorative arts, religious art and Mosan art museums.
