Fodor's Review

The Modern Art Museum (which shares a building with the Oldmasters and Fin-de-siecle museums) burrows deep underground, but it's in the process of being relocated, so much of its exhibition space has been taken over by the new Fin-de-Siecle Museum. Notable works include French neoclassicist Jacques-Louis David’s infamous The Death of Marat (1793), depicting the image of the murdered French revolutionary leader Jean-Paul Marat, which is often cited as one of the first examples of modernist painting. The collection is particularly strong on Belgian and French art of the past 100 years, although due to a planned move in 2018 to the former Vanderborght building, near the Grand'Place, this part of the collection is currently only available to see in the form of temporary exhibitions. Brochures and guided tours in English are available.
