Musée de Woluwe Museum - Centre Albert Marinus

The Musée de Woluwe Museum is the setting for exhibitions organised by the Albert Marinus Centre and other occasional cultural activities (readings, conferences, etc.).  

Located on the edge of the Roodebeek park in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert, the museum lies in a private house built at the initiative of Emile Devos at the end of the 19th century. The architecture of this atypical house is inspired by Frisian houses (North of Holland). A large part of the period decorations have been preserved, giving a lot of charm to the museum rooms. Since its opening in 1950, the museum has been the setting for artistic events.

Since 1980, the museum has been the headquarters of the NPO Albert Marinus Centre, which contains the collection (library, correspondence and writings) bequeathed by Albert Marinus (1886-1979), an internationally renowned sociologist and writer who dedicated his life to the study and promotion of intangible cultural heritage. The Albert Marinus Centre has a documentation centre and organises numerous cultural activities: exhibitions, publications, guided tours, on themes related to intangible cultural heritage. It has been recognised for its expertise in this field by Unesco since 2016.
