La Boverie is a museum in the city of Liège in Belgium. It opened in May 2016. It is housed in the former Palais des beaux-arts de Liège, built in the Parc de la Boverie for the Liège International in 1905. The building previously housed the prints and drawings collections (1952-1980) of the city's Musée des Beaux-Arts and the Walloon art collections of the city's Académie royale des beaux-arts (1970s-1980), before becoming the Musée d'art moderne (later known as the Musée d'art moderne et d'art contemporain or MMAC) from 1980 to 2011. MMAC was merged with the prints, drawings and Walloon collections in 2011 to form a new single collection known as the 'musée des Beaux-Arts'.

A part of the building is now under construction.

  • The collection is not that big, but does have some beautiful masterpieces from different times periods and different countries. Would recommend to visit if you are in Liege and like art.
  • Good museum at the heart of a beautiful park. Lots of trees to shelter from the sun or rain as you walk down to the museum. A few masters in their collection.
