Architect Stéphane Beel designed an impressive museum complex encompassing a number of beautiful historical buildings. With a surprising programme of both classical masters and contemporary artists, M Leuven is a pioneer in the field. New and upcoming talents are also given an opportunity to present their works.
M permanently houses the works of a number of renowned artists. For example, you can discover paintings and sculptures by Flemish masters like Rogier van der Weyden, Constantin Meunier and Quinten Massijs. Having developed from an 18th-century cabinet of curiosities in the attic of Leuven town hall, M’s collection now comprises approximately 52,000 pieces. The central focus of the collection is art production in Leuven and Brabant from the Middle Ages until the 19th century.
With an extensive range of lectures, family Sundays, book presentations, films, tours, student nights and more, there is an art to visiting M.
