  • "The theatre begins with a hanger"-this Museum for me started with a café in the Museum (I came from Bruges is not pozavtrakavshij). Ordered a burger I cooked in my eyes more than 20 minutes. With long breaks for chatter with a colleague and just to gljadenie the window. When that Burger was very tasty. The museum itself is also not good. I am pleased to observe contemporary art and in San Francisco, and in Helsinki, and from us. in "Garage". But here ... large rooms, which posted 3-4 subject. All together-"work of art". Very controversial.

  • This is a really nice museum! There are always interesting exhibitions. The Richter exhibition was AMAZING. I was fortunate to have been able to see those 8 unseen pieces from 2017.  more »
  • The SMAK is a must in today's art. Beautiful monographic exhibitions and collections impressive (Beuys, Broodthaers, Fabre, Borremans, Tuymans, Nauman, etc). Nice coffee too, all in a beautiful park where the amazing Museum of fine arts.

  • Good selection of modern art. You can easily spend at least half a day wondering though the collection. Easily accessible from the train station and close to other museums.
  • I became a "friend" of the museum, so that I can visit it whenever I want - given membership also gives me reductions on pieces of art, it pays for itself - the current exhibition downstairs wasn't my favorite - but upstairs was a great experience
  • Great building with quite a few interesting work
  • Downstairs are the temporary expositions and upstairs the permanent pieces and some temporary exhibits. Make sure to read about the exhibits before you pass them by; Vestiaire is for free.
  • i liked the congo part but the modern art stuff is just boring and hard to understand cause there is no explanation card on it
