Museum of Archaeology

Located in a former mont de piété (pawnshop), set by Wenceslas Cobergher in 1622, this museum has great local and regional collections which date from prehistory to the Middle Ages.

Time-travel into the past

Prestigious items from recent digs are on display, such as those from the Gallo-Roman necropolis on Rue Perdue in Tournai which yielded a sarcophagus which was listed in 2012 as a “Treasure of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation” and items from the Merovingian cemeteries in the Saint Brice quarter, from which came the grave known as the grave “of the Saxon Princess”, which was also listed as a “Treasure of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation”, in May 2013.
