Musées royaux d’Art et d’Histoire

The royal museums for art and history at Bruxelles is a combination of state museums including the Art & History Museum at the Parc du Cinquantenaire (Jubelpark), the Porte de Hal, the Musical Instrument Museum in an art nouveau building and the Museums of the Far East located at Laken. The flagship is the giant Musée Art & Histoire (formerly called Musée du Cinquantenaire) which is one of the largest art museums in Europe.

The museum can be found in the southern building attached to the Monument du Cinquantenaire. You can’t miss the entrance because of the beautiful architecture and the tower with the letters ARTIBVS on it. The collection is an interesting mix of archaeological findings, decorative arts, and antiquities from around the world. When I was there a fantastic exhibition of Inuit art was presented.
