Ansembourg Museum

This private mansion, built in approximately 1740 for a banker, pays witness, through its architectural features and decorative arts that are typical of Liège, to the sophisticated lifestyle of this era. Art objects are on display, whilst furniture from Liège and the rest of Europe depict what the interiors of the time would have resembled. The Ansembourg Museum also proposes exhibitions throughout the year which promote one aspect or another of the collections from Liège's museums.

The renovation of the Ansembourg Museum... 1st phase

For the Ansembourg Museum, this beautiful mansion built around 1740, the first phase of restoration will soon begin.

In 1903, the city of Liège acquired the building, which in 1905 became its museum of archaeology and decorative arts.

As the building is part of the Walloon Region's exceptional heritage since 2009, a subsidy of around 85% is earmarked for its maintenance and renovation.

This first phase, estimated at 1,375,000 euros, mainly concerns the outer shell. Divided into three lots, it includes the repair of the roof (identical restoration and consolidation of the structure), the sewerage network, the masonry and the ironwork, as well as the painting and carpentry work.
