Art & History Museum

CLOSING COVID-19

Due to the measures taken by the Brussels government, the Art & History Museum is currently closed. Take good care of yourself and your loved ones, and please respect all the measures currently in place. It's the only way to put a stop to this crisis and the only way to make sure we are able to welcome you again in the near future.

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!
