Set in a beautiful 45-acre park in Morlanwelz in Hainaut, Belgium, the Royal Museum of Mariemont was founded by a wealthy member of the 19th century bourgeoisie, Raoul Warocqué. Warocqué gathered works coveted by the most important museums in the world. He devoted much of his fortune to acquiring masterpieces of classical antiquity. At Mariemont, you can admire anything from world-renowned Tournai porcelain, to an impressive collection of Egyptian antiquities, including a five-tonne Cleopatra statue. The museum currently hosts three notable exhibitions, all celebrating the centenary of its founder’s death.
