I don't know too much about Architecture but always thought this seemed a pretty strange building to host a museum dedicated to the topic! From the outside it's not particularly eye catching, at least not for the right reasons. The history of the building is intriguing enough - an old masonic lodge (hence the name 'La Loge') built by Fernand Bodson, who was a major figure of Belgian architecture during the first half of the 20th Century - so I decided to have a look around and I have to admit that I was wrong. It's in fact a lovely building, very atmospheric and totally unique. The permanent collection is pretty impressive and architecture geeks probably enjoy the temporary ones a good deal (too many incomprehensible sketches for me!).
