About these ratings

If you only have time to hit one art museum, the Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts (Royal Museums of Fine Arts) should be it. These combined exhibitions (the Museum of Ancient Art and the Museum of Modern Art), house Belgium's most extensive collection of artwork. Spend some time with old masters like Rubens, Brueghel and Van Dyck before walking among more unconventional visions by Chagall, Van Gogh and Dalí. Other notable exhibits display pieces from around the world. You can also see work by Belgium's own Victor Horta (as a great precursor to the Horta Museum). If you're traveling with children, keep an eye out for special activities taking place during your visit, such as art lessons and other interactive displays.

The Royal Museums of Fine Arts neighbor each other just a block or so from the Musical Instruments Museum. The museums are open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is about $10 USD (€8 EUR). For more information, visit the official website.
