Cinquantenaire Museum

We are pleased to be able to offer you this guide to one of the biggest museum institutions in Belgium. Unfortunately, the web site does not extend to giving you a full viewing of our collection of thousands of art treasures and historical objects, but we hope that you will come and visit us and enjoy discovering or rediscovering the immense heritage that we manage and display for your enjoyment. For us, indeed, art and history are not dead and dusty subjects, but live and vital ones with which to pass leisure time pleasantly and instructively.

Enjoy your visit in the Brussels Cinquantenaire!

Sunday evening April 12th the exhibition on the prehistoric caves of Lascaux closed its doors for the last time in Brussels. We welcomed almost 95 000 visitors! This traveling exhibition will now go on to Paris.
In order to move the monumental reconstruction of the caves, the main entrance and parking lot of the Cinquantenaire Museum will be closed from Saturday the 18th until Sunday the 26th of April. Visitors to the museum can enter via the entrance for school groups, by the antiquities section. 
Because of the general strike on Wednesday the 22nd of April the museum will be closed to the public. Thank you for your understanding.
