Exclusive visit of the Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten Antwerpen (KMSKA)
Exclusive guided visit of "De Schoonste Tour" at the Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten Antwerpen (KMSKA).
"De Schoonste Tour" focuses on the old and modern masters currently in the old and new parts of the museum. On the one hand, visitors get a glimpse of the high lights of the collection and the masterpieces of the KMSKA. On the other hand, this tour will give them an idea of the renovations and transformation the building underwent. A guided tour lasts 2 hours, so more than enough to walk through both the new and the old part of the museum.
For 11 years, the KMSKA was closed to the public. During that time, the historic building was renovated and a new pure white volume was added. The new addition is an infill in the historic patios. This creates 40% additional exhibition space. Dikkie Scipio of KAAN Architecten created two worlds in one building. Even before its opening, the museum as a building was already winning awards.
With 8,400 pieces, the KMSKA's collection is the largest and most valuable in Flanders. The collection is the result of the eclectic tastes of collectors and directors from different eras. The oldest work dates from the early 14th century. While the KMSKA owns art mainly from Belgium and the Southern Netherlands, it also has a good number of international masterpieces of exceptional quality.
