      Tourists flock to Belgium to sample some of the most delectable treats known to humans — chocolates filled with creams, nut pastes and liqueurs — also known as pralines. Belgian artists take centre stage at this Brussels museum, which is known for its exhibition of human society. The impressionist and surrealist collections are particularly impressive. They house one of the largest and most diverse art collections in Belgium. It features works of arts from the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries. The owner is even more famous — Manneken-Pis, the tiny fountain of a peeing boy known around the world as the symbol of Brussels.

      Its interactive displays are perfect for children and adults of all ages. The Cinquantenaire Museum exhibits a broad range of objects from all five continents. Visitors are given infrared headphones in order to listen to almost musical extracts of the instruments on display. This museum sits atop the Mont des Arts Kunstberg the art and museum hill of the city. The Royal Museum contains over 20, drawings, sculptures, and paintings, which date from the early 15th century to the present. I actually missed one of my favourite parts of the Cinquantenaire Museum on my first visit.

      It is dedicated to temporary exhibitions with costume, fashion and lace themes. It covers social history, cultural heritage, and decorative arts. Instead of a boring commentary, you hear a song played by the instrument you are viewing. Cinquantenaire Museum Andrew gets in touch with other civilisations at the Cinquantenaire Museum, Brussels The Cinquantenaire Museum is part of the Royal Museums of Art and History and is a museum of civilisations, grouped loosely by region.
