From 18 May till 27 August, the Brussels museums are highlighting the masters of their permanent collections. Discover in 100 days the 100 masterpieces on www.100masters.brussels, through treasure hunts, speed dates, guided tours and a host of other activities. And we also participate!
The 5 masters that made it to the top 100 are the Iguanodons of Bernissart (of course!), the mysterious lunar rock, the wonderful sea lilies, the extinct Tasmanian “wolf” and finally our “Sea-rex”, Hainosaurus bernardi, one of the largest mosasaurs known to date.
You can even come and admire a sixth masterpiece, a pop-up master: the slit drum from the Royal Museum for Central Africa in Tervuren. During the closure for renovation, this museum organizes pop-up exhibitions in other museums. The drum is more than a hundred years old and what makes him so special is its unique shape: a stylized antelope.
We made trails for children (6-8 and 9-12 years old) and we offer special guided tours for groups of 15 people. The trails are available for free near the cloakroom, in Dutch, French, English, German, Russian and Spanish. You can book your guided tour on 02 627 42 52.
