The Halle Gate Museum is housed in a former medieval city gate that was constructed between 1381 and 1383 and is the last remaining vestige of the city’s second walls. In the 19th century, the building was restored in a neo-Gothic style by the architect Henri Beyaert and now serves as a museum dedicated to the history of the medieval City of Brussels.

The museum is part of the Royal Museums of Art and History and offers exhibits and displays on the city’s rich history and cultural heritage.
