The Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp is going through some major changes. As the museum building is undergoing a spectacular revamp, the museum’s mission and vision are being renewed. The new museum wants to amaze, enrich and connect. It wants to do so in every aspect of its being: with the help of its outstanding collection, its scientific research, its activities for a broad audience – regardless of cultural background or age. Offline and online. By means of this video channel among other things.

The Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp is a public institution of the Government of Flanders and the only Flemish museum with a scientific status.

At the moment, the KMSKA is closed for renovations. However the collection remains close by thanks to numerous exhibitions and projects at host venues in and around Antwerp.

The new museum is due to open its doors in 2019. The KMSKA is currently working on the building and on creating a brand new museum story. Find out all about it and follow our progress.
