I found this place so interesting and think it is definitely worth visiting. My only slight niggle is I wish they had told me the chapel would be closing early as it was closed by the time I came out of the hospital. If I return to Lille I will certainly re-visit and next time I will ensure I get... More

een onverwachts pareltje in mijn bezoek aan Lille. Een schittterende binnenplaats, een aantal originele vertrekken en een klein museum op zolder maakte dit bezoek compleet. An unexpected surpise during my visit in Lille. A splendid courtyard, some ancient rooms and a small museum upstairs completed my stay

Interesting building. The Hospice it self was a disappointment, as it was nothing more than an empty room. Perhaps a work in progress.

Not quite what we expected but well worth a visit. The tiled old kitchen is amazing. No 2 tiles are the same. Lots of artefacts and history.

This was a great stop on a Lille day trip. For 4 Euros, it was well worth the visit. Downstairs you can walk through the original rooms of the hospice, and upstairs (in the former dormitory) there is a great collection of both art and antiquities. The museum is small -- will only take you an hour or so --... More

We entered this building thinking this would be a museum about the city of Lille. It was, of sorts. The downstairs of the convent recreates the interior of a typical early modern flemish house. That part was very successful. The upstairs is a mix between the history of the convent and that of the city, but the information panels are... More

I use to visit every time I travel to Lille and I have never been disappointed : the temporary exhibitions are always really interesting (up to 07FEB2017 you can see : "SAFET ZEC LA PEINTURE ET LA VIE" which I cannot recommend enough).

This is a really nice historical museum but they had a wonderful expo of a artist from yougoslavia. The quality of the work was great.

A pleasant hour wandering around. The architecture is interesting, we didn't see anything amazing on display. We visited on a weekend where state/town owned attractions were free. We would probably not wanted to pay much to visit if we had to.

We were in this museum, but had no idea what to see....we were so pleasantly surprised. Not only the building is interesting, the exhibion -Zec- was thrillingly excellent. We had not heard of this artist before.
