  • Wonderful museum, with significant focus on late medieval and renaissance biblical paintings. Some of the more recent era works (paintings and statues) are absolutely stunning, possibly up there with the best I’ve ever seen.
  • Came to see Patrick Van Caeckenbergh’s whimsical, magical and fantasy creations based on his encyclopedic knowledge of history, culture, traditions and the understanding of the sciences, very impressed.
