This is the museum of Art History. What a magnificent and imposing work of architecture. We purchased a ticket on arrival which was very easy to do. The highlights were the ground floor collection of Egyptian collections. In addition the Roman and Greek antiquities and...More

We were lucky enough to get free tickets to the museum from our hotel, and only had to pay 5 euros each to add on the special Brueghel exhibit. You can order tickets online, which I would suggest, as the lines outside for tickets can...More

The biggest exhibition of Bruegels ever staged - and in a spectacular setting. Costs were a little steep at 30 euros for the exhibition but well worth it. The staged entry meant that it never felt packed nor did it feel rushed. A once in...More

Loved all the great artwork at this place. The building ain’t too shabby either. I didn’t get the audio guide (wish I would have) but just tried to follow along with my Rick Steves guidebook but that was a little tough to follow. There are...More

We purchased the audio guide. I found it very helpful since you can learn specifically about art in which you are interested. Guided tours may bypass items that interest you.
