Very well laid out. Covered the artist's whole life and works. English was available via audio guide but only for selected works. I would recommend at least 2 hours to go through the museum. Not suitable for children due to a lot of graphic drawings.

Interesting gallery. Only two floors so very easy to wander around and take your time. Some of the paintings are of an erotic nature. Nice building in the centre of Namur.

This is a very interesting museum with a lot of information about an artist that was previously unknown to me. Entry was very cheap. It's a little hard to find due to the construction going on in the street.

The museum celebrates the life of Namur artist, satirist and general good time boy Felicien Rops. I knew nothing about him before a random stop at this town during a longer journey but was so glad we investigated this place. As for Felicien, I think...More
