Musée de l'Hospice Comtesse

In the heart of Old Lille, the museum is housed in the hospital founded in 1237 by Countess Jeanne de Flandre, which did not cease to operate until 1939. The current buildings date from the 15th, 17th and 18th centuries. They consist of a room for patients with a vaulted ceiling, a chapel decorated with the coats of arms of the hospital's main benefactors, and the buildings of the Augustinian sisters' community organised around the two courtyards of a medicinal garden; Since 1962, they have been used as a showcase for paintings, tapestries, carved wood, furniture and earthenware from the region. On the ground floor, they evoke the interior of a 17th century Flemish religious house (closed for embellishment work until spring 2022). Upstairs, the art collections present the history of the city of Lille. Bus line 14 or Navette Vieux Lille - stop: Lion d'Or. Open every day from 10am to 6pm, except Monday morning and Tuesday. Closed on 01/01, 01/05, 14/07, 15/08, sale Monday, 01/11 and 25/12
