The museum in Tervuren is closed, but it can be seen here and there!

 

 Europe    |    Belgium    |    USA    |   Africa
 

 

Our collections and exhibitions have always travelled around Europe, Africa, and the United States. Each year, we receive around thirty requests for loans of collection pieces kept in our reserves, for exhibits in Belgium and abroad. But during the renovation, the masterpieces from our showcases will appear in the most diverse places, and the museum will be found in Los Angeles, Paris, New York, and Florida. RMCA has become a 'Pop-up Museum'!

We will also organize our own exhibits, not in Tervuren, but in other parts of the country.

And you might stumble upon the museum’s biggest hits, like the elephant.

A special partnership exists with BOZAR in Brussels, where we will be present throughout the renovation period.
