In the heart of Liege, the Museum of Walloon Life presents to you the history and the lives of Walloons from the 19th century to the present day!

The museum welcomes you in the stunning buildings of the 13th century convent of the Friars minor, which have been lovingly and expertly renovated.

Life in Wallonia is explained through a diverse number of themes and a beautiful collection of objects and pieces.
