Set the heart of Old Namur, by 2020 the complex known as Les Bateliers will welcome the Museum of Archaeology and its rich collections from Prehistoric

Times to the Middle Ages in a brand-new exhibition space with contemporary museography. This new museum centre, which is to include an auditorium, a

boutique and a restaurant, also houses the Museum of Decorative Arts in a charming 18th-century mansion (the Hôtel de Groesbeeck – de Croix), enhanced by a

garden in the French style. The life of this island of culture, which is linked to the Félicien Rops provincial museum and the Maison de la Poésie poetry centre by

the public gardens Les Bateliers and Les Poètes, will be interspersed with exhibitions, activities, concerts and lectures.

2019: partial opening of the Museum of Decorative Arts and temporary exhibitions
