Discover the Halle Gate

Around the year 1000, an urban centre emerged in the swampy valley of the Senne: Bruocsella. Its central location allowed the village to grow quickly and by 1350 a second wall had to be built around the city. The Halle Gate is the only tangible remnant of this old city wall. After several transformations, it eventually became one of the first museums of the brand-new Belgian state. Medieval weaponry, an imperial cradle, the stuffed horses of Archdukes Albert and Isabella, an important collection of guild chains and a doll's house tell the story of Brussels and its inhabitants, the Brusseleirs. In addition, the folklore collection of the RMAH is shown in temporary exhibitions.
