Discover the culture and heritage of Tournai with your family or friends!
Tournai has 8 museums including the Puppet Centre of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, the Cathedral Treasury and TAMAT.
Each museum highlights the history and popular culture of the city: its vestiges dating back to the time of the Franks, its military past, its folklore, its famous porcelain, its rich textile history...
Children will prefer to admire the curiosities of the Natural History Museum or the 2,500 pieces of the Puppet Centre, while art lovers will go to the Fine Arts Museum designed by Victor Horta to admire the only 2 Manets displayed in Belgium.
