The museum building after the 2009 expansion

The Gallo-Roman Museum is located in the city centre of Tongeren, in the shadow of the Basilica of Our Lady. Architectural firm De Gregorio & Partners opted for a powerful architectural design with few details. The natural stone facade and the relatively modest above-ground volume allow the museum to blend into its surroundings. The building is quite enclosed. Here and there, there are openings that give you views of the city. Filtered daylight enters through sunken patios, in a reference to archaeology.
