  • Only the two Van Eycks make it worth to go to this small museum that has some nice little gardens and very friendly staff  more »
  • We enjoyed a wonderful overview of the history of Belgian visual art. We were able to see several Van Eyck's, Hugo van der Goes, Duvivier, Van den Berghe, Brusselmans, and much more.  more »

  • Definitely worth the 12 euros entrance fee and at least 1h of your time. Small but beautiful selection of Flemish paintings from primitive, neoclassical and expressionist periods. Including Bosch, Van Eyck and Magritte.
  • Loved it ! Got to see Van Eyck and Bosches works in person. The audio tour was a great bonus. Really enjoyed learning about the artworks which interested me.
