Belgium has been hiding a treasure for 600 years: the manuscripts of the Dukes of Burgundy. Come discover these fabulous masterpieces rescued from time at the KBR museum.

Six centuries ago, Brussels belonged to the rich and powerful Dukes of Burgundy. Skilled politicians and cultured patrons, they established a stirring treasure, a unique and fascinating collection of manuscripts: the Library of the Dukes of Burgundy. These masterpieces, which have survived the ravages of time and history, have been looked aft er by KBR and can now be admired at the KBR museum. Explore Europe’s medieval cultural past and then admire the magnificent illuminated manuscripts from the ducal library. Although manuscripts form the heart of the museum, the KBR museum is much more than just looking at books. There is also a lot to experience!
