100 treasures from the Brussels' museums

The 100 masters, Brussels museum masterpieces campaign ended on 27 August 2016. Launched by the Brussels museums Council on 18 May 2016, it aimed at promoting the masterpieces of Brussels museums' permanent collections. The rich capital's museum heritage is worth Brussels citizens, Belgians and foreigners (re-)discovering it.

This campaign gathered 41 Brussels museums together (art, scientific, technical and historical museums) and gave their permanent collections a new impulse thanks to a rich, diversified and original programme! Moreover, most of these gems are accessible to visitors on a permanent basis.

 

CoverEN.jpgA book published by Racine/Lannoo in collaboration with the Brussels Museums Council will tell you all about these 100 Masters and their genesis:

"100 treasures of Brussels' museums"


(available in French, Dutch and English).
