The strength and the charm of the MSK is the variety of its collection and the way it is presented: never before have the old masters and modernists hung so perfectly in place as they do in this iconic museum building. An auditorium, a library, a children’s workshop and a brasserie make it into a modern, multifunctional complex where you can spend many happy hours surrounded by things of beauty.
You can also head to the Museum of Fine Arts (MSK) to follow the restoration of The Ghent Altarpiece, an absolute masterpiece of Old Flemish painting.

the collection of Flemish Art

Hieronymus Bosch, Peter Paul Rubens, James Ensor, and many more: their works are on display throughout the world. Nevertheless, nowhere else will you find a fuller picture of these and other world-renowned Flemish artists than in their home country. The Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp, the Groeninge museum in Bruges and the Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent tell the story of the visual arts in the southern Netherlands from the 15th to the 20th century. Their collections have shared a parallel historical development and complement each other perfectly.

Together they form the Collection of Flemish Art.
