The history of this museum is quite interesting, open in 1829; it is the oldest museum of Belgium. It has received very precious collection and rare specimen. However it declined for a time and in 1959, was quite in a bad shape. The new conservator managed to put it back on track but in the early 80s it had to be renovated again. More recently the museum has received some important investment and has completely been redesigned.
At the sight of their website, I'd gladly make a new visit to see the result.
As a side note, this museum has also been a source of inspiration for Henri Vernes, the author of 'Bob Morane' (a famous comics).
