Schilderij De intrige van James Ensor

KMSKA Backstage

Rubens, Van Eyck, Fouquet, Ensor, Magritte and other great names besides. That’s the KMSKA collection. Their art is travelling the world right now or waiting patiently in storage. Because we’re renovating our museum. In the meantime, our curators have been working hard on the new presentation of the collection. Come and take a peek backstage!

Watch here

Temporarily closed, fully active

It’s not possible to visit the collection for the time being. In the meantime, we’re working hard on a new museum. Our masters aren’t sitting still either. Visit them near you, or travel with them. All over the world.
