Fodor's Review

This is one of Belgium's finest museums, and its temporary exhibitions are usually exceptional. Built in 1902 at the edge of Citadelpark, the Neoclassical Museum of Fine Arts (often listed as M.S.K.) 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, and until 2019 it will also be exhibiting sections of Jan and Hubert van Eyck's Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, parts of which have been removed from Sint-Baafskathedraal and are being painstakingly restored here, one piece at a time.
