While Pallais des Beaux Arts is the most famous museum in Lille, that doesn't mean it's the only one. One particular museum that I like a lot is Musée de l’Hospice Comtesse. This is build inside an old hospital, established in 1237. There is always a permanent exibitions there as also temporally ones. The fees are 3 euros for an adult and 2 for students and children.
