Fashion and Lace Museum (fully booked)
The Fashion and Lace Museum has its home in a 17th-century house just around the corner from the Grand-Place/Grote Markt. The building’s façades were refurbished between 1973 and 1974, when a sandstone base was added. The museum has grown steadily since it was set up in 1977 and now plays host to a splendid collection of clothes and accessories, both past and present, displaying these in its temporary exhibitions. The museum also has a permanent exhibition on the lace for which Brussels is famous.
