5th_Europe_Report -- "Musée archéologique de Namur" (Archaeological Museum) - Located on the north bank of the Sambre River near where it merges with the Meuse, this historic building was built between 1588 and 1590 for the butchers' guild and later served several diverse functions - e.g. religious school, hospital and arsenal.  In the mid 1800's it came under the control of the regional Archaeological Society and in more recent times has undergone careful restoration. Just inside the entrance is also a secondary tourist information office. (Photo taken from the bridge over to the point of confluence below the Citadel.)
