Opened to the public in March 2009, after several years of work, the Grand Curtius, which is located in the historic heart of Liège and on the banks of the Meuse river, is one of the major hubs for museums in Liège. This museum site – which was built around a Mosan Renaissance building, constructed at the end of the 16th century or the beginning of the 17th century for Jean de Corte, known as Curtius, a rich arms and gunpowder dealer – has a total surface area of more than 5000 m² and houses exceptional collections of art and history. The Curtius Palace, which was built with red bricks, Meuse stones and mascarons and is a listed building in Wallonia's exceptional heritage, wears its colours beautifully.
The exhibitions and permanent collections of the Grand Curtius are open to the public. Consult the preventive sanitary measures related to the Covid19 pandemic that are applicable to the museum. Starting Wednesday, November 3, 2021, the Covid Safe Ticket check will be generalized, for people over 16 years old.
