Art & History Museum

Reopening on the 5th of December

The Art & History Museum is pleased to welcome you back starting December 5th, in all safety.

All information about visiting the museum can be found here.

Attention: starting December 5th 2020 the Museum will only be opened on Saturday and Sunday!

Step inside this historic building, one of the biggest museums in Belgium and erected by former Belgian King Leopold II. Discover a wealth of artefacts from prehistoric times over antiquity and the European applied arts to a vast collection of non-European art. Explore what's on, including interesting temporary exhibitions, lectures and various other activities. Unfortunately, the website does not extend to giving you a full viewing of our collection, comprising thousands of art treasures and historical objects. However, we hope that you will come and visit us and enjoy discovering or rediscovering the immense heritage that we manage and display. To us, indeed, art and history are not dead and dusty subjects, but very much alive and a constant source of inspiration and enjoyment.

Enjoy your visit to the Art & History Museum!
