LES BATELIERS – MUSEUM OF DECORATIVE ARTS AND ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM

The Museum of Decorative Arts is set in the former mansion of the counts of Groesbeeck and the marquises of Croix, enhanced by a French style garden, which evokes the atmosphere of a nobleman’s residence during the Age of the Enlightenment. Alongside it, the Museum of Archaeology (currently undergoing work) aims to offer visitors the chance to rediscover archaeological collections devoted to the Namur region in a brand-new exhibition space. Les Bateliers is a real island of culture connecting the Félicien Rops provincial museum, the Maison de la Poésie poetry centre and the Maison du Conte storytelling centre through public gardens that hold temporary exhibitions and permanent works (poem chairs by Quebec sculptor Michel Goulet, fresco by Tamar Kasparian, miniature sculptures by Spanish artist Isaac Cordal).
