NEWS Permanent closure of the exhibition 'The Heritage of Rogier van der Weyden'

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 what we were assured and to our last press release, it is no longer possible to guarantee that the roof of the building housing the exhibition is watertight. In order to prevent any eventual problems and as a precaution, the Museum has decided to close the exhibition permanently.

Please rest assured that this difficult and painful decision for our institution is dictated by concern with the preventative conservation of this exceptional cultural heritage, and that our team will make every effort to ensure optimal management of the situation.
