The Museum of Fine Arts is open. Enjoy the beauty of our unique building and marvel at 600 years of art, from Bosch to Magritte. Together with neighbours S.M.A.K. and Sint-Pietersabdij, and with the parc on our doorstep, we invite you to the Ghent Museum Quarter for an original cultural excursion! A leisurely visit to all the galleries takes about 2 hours. Take this into account when choosing your time slot.

What can you experience at the museum?
In the completely renewed presentation, we showcase our collection in all its diversity, spread over no less than 40 galleries. Visitors will discover new themes, monographic rooms and dozens of never-before-exhibited works in a route that promises to excite and surprise. 

Groups and schools can schedule a visit, with or without a guide, via the online booking form. MSK has also developed a familiy route through the museum tailored to families with children..

What measures apply?

  • Use of the cloakroom is compulsory. Bags larger than 25x30x15cm, capes, (rain) coats and wet coats are not allowed in the galleries. 
  • For individual visits, it is no longer mandatory to wear a face mask. However, this is recommended if social distancing isn't possible.
  • There is a fixed route in the permanent collection.
  • We will be offering complimentary hand sanitiser in several locations. Feel free to use this.
  • We ask you to make cashless payments as much as possible.
