  • Very disappointing exhibits; never big ' thing to do. We think that such a place would, if we take for example the convent of Bernardine in Paris who, though much smaller, offers space for exhibitions of high quality (which is more the case in ATPC for 20 years), but also conferences, concerts. More people would bp, and it would legitimize set back along the bar restaurant on the roof.

  • The day of my visit a part of the rooms (including the permanent collections) were closed. A discount has been applied but what a disappointment. Not much to see. An exhibition of photos from 1969 on Eddy Mercx. However, the building is very beautiful, but in 20 minutes my visit has ended. Well, I think that it requires access to the permanent collections to fully judge the charm of this museum.
