  House of the King
by filipdebont

Opposite the beautiful City Hall, there is another remarkable building: the House of the King.

It is built in the 19th century, the design dates from the 16th century. It was the bread house and later on the house of the Duke. So there never lived a King in this building.

Nowadays it is used as Museum of Brussels.
Here you can learn more on the history of the city and the industrial art.

On the second floor you can see the costumes of Manneken Pis.
