The Félicien Rops museum is located in a former hotel de maître (period house), at the heart of the old part of Namur. It is not far from the birthplace of the artist and from Saint-Loup Church, a baroque building, considered to be an important landmark in Namur's cultural heritage.

The museum has on display all aspects of the artist’s work (1833 - 1898), the important stages of his life (Namur, Brussels, Paris), the people he met and his artisitic creations. A technical introduction to the diversity of his talents is also offered including: etching, drawing, painting.

The museum is the property of the Province de Namur which since its establishment in 1964 has continued to increase its collection, helped by the French Community of Belgium and private patrons.

In addition to the presentation of the collections, the museum offers a range of services, including guided tours, temporary exhibitions and courses, audio-guide, publication on the artist and his century, a center for documentation, an audio-visual displays and a cine-club on art films.
