  • For such a small country, Belgium has a decent amount of class museums. Leuven thought it shouldn't leg behind and opened Museum M (just called M here) in 2009. I'm a keen museum visitor, but never have come to grips with the place. In the first place, its (not too large) collection (but of great historic value) mainly consists of medieval religious art, not always my cuppa (half of the church at the grand market is now part of M too, so your ticket will let you visit half a church with religious art as well. A handful of top works). Lots of temporary exhibitions have been rehashing the art from different thematic perspectives, so I've kind of seen it by now. The museum combines that scope with an interest in contemporary art. However, the temp exhibitions with modern art are usually quite small, making revisiting too expensive. Ah well, find out for yourselves...
  • Nice place to visit. Very nice collection of art
  • Great museum! Utopia exhibition was a beauty!
  • This museum shows old master pieces of church art and pairings in the golden ages of Dutch. The painting shows us blue, bright and wet climate of Netherlands. Especially, Frans Hals's portrait deeply impressed me, in which people often smiled.
  • Very nice museum, great building, nice expositions and a great roof teracce in summer!
