City Museum of Brussels/Manneken-Pis Costumes

The reason I was interested in seeing the City Museum of Brussels (Musees de la Ville de Bruxelles)was to see the collection of costumes worn by the Manneken-Pis. My boyfriend thought I was crazy, but I had taken a liking to him!

The first few floors of the museum were very dull, historical displays laid out like a middle school science fair.

When we finally got to the top floor of where the costumes were located, I was very impressed. There was every costume imaginable from different countries to different sports. They were all in glass cases and very detailed, with a stratagic hole cut out in just the right place.

I enjoyed that part of the museum but don't know if I could say that it was worth the 100 franc admission fee.
