Old and famous paintings, but allmost no visitors May 26, 2009
This museum is special, it's quite big and the art is tugged in a corner. At least that's how I experienced it.

All pieces of art are from the 14th till the 18th century (French revolution) and a bit later. One painting is from the French Revolution, and I think this painting should get much more attention. Death of Marat is world famous but it's nowhere to be seen, I found it in a room some where in the back of the museum. Most of my classmates have been looking for it but didn't find it.

A large part of the collection is made up out of paintings from the late dark ages, a nother part can be seen in a modern day wing of the museum. These paintings are a lot younger. This part of the museum can be entered through a special elevator. This elevator is so slow they've placed seets in it! 6 stories will thake you at least two minutes. So walking might be a lot faster.

The museum of ancient arts is my favorite Brussels (and when I think about it, Belgian) museum. It can't really compete with giants as Le Louvre or the Prado museum, but it has a nice collection of artwork dating somewhere between the 15th and 18th century if I'm correct.

What might be nice for tourists is the fact that the bigger part of the collection consists of Flemish and Netherlands artwork made during the Ancien RĂ©gime. Some really famous works are to be admired, including paintings by Breugel, Rubens, Memling, Bosch and countless "Flemish primitives".

These are all artists that have marked the Belgian history and culture, and have gained international fame as time went by.

The Fine Arts museum of Ancient Arts is located in the same street as the fine arts museum of Modern art (which surely encourages a mixed visit) and is opened from 10am until 5pm (normally every day).
