Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Belgium

Highly recommended
The Royal Fine Arts Museum is housed in a 19C building. Its façade of Corinthian columns is topped by bronze carriages by Vinçotte and decorated with four allegorical figures representing architecture, painting, sculpture and engraving. The museum has an exceptional collection of paintings, including some by the early Flemish painters and Rubens. Modern and contemporary art are also represented.
