The royal museum of fine arts. Jan 22, 2017
This museum is divided into two sections; the Museum of Ancient Art and the Museum of Modern Art.

I only visited the Museum of Ancient Art. This houses paintings, drawings and sculptures from the 15th until 18th century. There you can admire many paintings by the most famous Flemish old masters, such as Breugel, Rubens and Van Dyck. At this museum you can also see the Death of Marat by Jacques Louis David; a painting you have surely seen in some school books.

2 different museums worth checking out if time permits Mar 13, 2010
The Royal Museum of Fine Arts has 2 different museums in the building, with one on ancient art and the other on modern art. Located near the Place Royale building, and a short walk from the train station, this place can be a little tricky to find, as it is not clearly marked.

The building itself has a nice looking courtyard, which is impressive to look at. This is where the Museum of Ancient Art is located, mainly on the upper levels. That museum contains an extensive collection of Flemish paintings, going back to the late 15th century, to the 18th century, including some from Peter Paul Ruben.

The Museum of Modern Art, is located below ground level, and can be a little tricky, as this section goes by its own numbering. Basically this one picks up where the Museum of Ancient Art left off, containing art from the 18th century to the present.

If you are a fan of Flemish art, this is the place that must be seen. And if you can appreciate art like myself, it’s worth checking out, if time permits.
