The art was well displayed and well labeled. After the main floor the other floors are strangely located, some having an escalator or elevator to access them more easily. Well worth exploring to the depths, as it were.

It was good experience to visit this place just beside city center of the Brussels. Lots of painting from different artists are main attraction of the place. If you have time, then you can visit the place.

We only had one hour for this museum but we could have spent much more time here. We focused our time on the Golden Age of Flemish art but were also able to see a couple unusual paintings, including a Rubens that I would never...More
