Museum about the history of the guild of crossbow archery, founded in 1381, and the history of the crossbow.

The guild of crossbowmen, formerly defenders of the city of Brussels, was founded in 1381 and still counts some 85 members today. This museum was created to preserve some 1500 objects, historical weapons and the knowledge required to manufacture, repair and conserve the traditional crossbow: a precious element of Brussels’ folklore.
