Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts
Lonely Planet review for Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts
The country’s most prestigious museums, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts incorporate both the Musée d’Art Ancien (ancient art) and the Musée d’Art Moderne (modern art). Among the many highlights are the collections of Flemish Primitives, the Breugels (especially Pieter the Elder) and Rubens in the Musée d’Art Ancien; and works by surrealist Paul Delvaux and fauvist Rik Wouters in the subterranean Musée d’Art Moderne. Also here as of early 2009 is the brand-new Musée René Magritte.
