The Musée Félicien Rops is devoted to 19th-century Namur-born artist Félicien Rops (1833-98), who fondly illustrated erotic lifestyles and macabre scenes. Born a few streets away at Rue du Président 33 (the house is marked with a plaque), Rops worked mainly in Paris and Brussels. He was never embraced by the art worlds in either city and became highly critical of them.
Housed in an 18th-century mansion just a few minutes' walk from the Trésor du Prieuré d'Oignies, the small Musée des Arts Anciens du Namurois holds a simple but pleasant collection of old artworks from the region, including paintings, religious pieces and Mosan metalwork.
