Take in a wide range of art, including works from the Belgian masters, at Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, a collection of the country's four most important museums. Two of the museums are located in the center of Brussels in the Coudenberg neighborhood: the Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Ancient Art. The Museum of Ancient Art was built as the Palais des Beaux-Arts funded by King Leopold II and showcases the artwork in large galleries. The other two museums are a few kilometers from the city center and house the work of specific artists: the Constantin Meunier Museum and the Antoine Wiertz Museum. Reach the Meunier Museum by tram lines 23, 90, 94 and the Wiertz Museum from the Luxembourg station. These two museums are free to enter and tour. All of the museums are free on the first Wednesday of every month, and with the Brussels Card. Alternatively, buy a combo ticket for all of the museums, including the Magritte Museum, for a discount and for convenience. These tickets are available at any of the museum's reception desks.

My main reason for visiting this museum was the work of Bruegel the Elder, and I wasn't disappointed. more »
The royal museum are actually multiple museums. About the old masters museum (permanent exhibition): Great works of art, well worth a visit. No explanation in the exhibition; if you want some, you have to get the audio guide.
Great Masterpieces, but not presented in the way the deserve. Some renovation efforts will be needed to increase the visitor experience
