Museum voor Schone Kunsten Review

Built in 1902 at the edge of Citadelpark, the Neoclassical Museum of Fine Arts has holdings that span the Middle Ages to the early 20th century, including works by Rubens, Gericault, Corot, Ensor, and Magritte. Its collection of Flemish Primitives is particularly noteworthy, with two paintings by Hieronymus Bosch: Saint Jerome and Christ Carrying the Cross. It also has a fine collection of sculpture and French painting. This is one of Belgium's best museums, and its temporary exhibitions are usually exceptional.
