Art & History Museum

The Art & History Museum reopens its doors starting June 30th 2020. All information and guidelines concerning your visit can be found under Practical information.

All other events and activities at the Museum remain suspended for the time being.

We look forward to see you again at the Museum!

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 in the Art & History Museum!
