This museum is dedicated to the work of sculptor Jean-Marie Gaspar and the history and heritage of Arlon, in the Belgian province of Luxembourg.
The Gaspar Museum is located in a middle-class house in the centre of the town. It takes its name from a family from Arlon, whose most well-known members are Jean-Marie Gaspar (1861-1931), the famed animal sculptor, and his brother Charles Gaspar (1871-1950),the photographer, collector and patron.
Two restored state rooms exhibit bronzes and many plaster sculptures by Jean Gaspar, as well as collections by Charles Gaspar.
The museum organises temporary exhibitions dedicated to the art and history of Arlon and the region. It also displays paintings by several artists from the province.
