From Friday, November the 22th 2013, the exhibition 'The Heritage of Rogier van der Weyden. Painting in Brussels 1450-1520' is defintively closed.
Contrary to an earlier press release, it is no longer possible to guarantee that the roof of the building that is housing the exhibition, is watertight.

This difficult and painful decision for the institution is dictated by concern with the preventative conservation of this exceptional cultural heritage.
