"Musée d'Ixelles" Région de Bruxelles-Capitale Things to Do Tip by Norali


A little museum, quite unknown in Ixelles area. I would have put it in Off the beaten path tips too.

I was not impressed by the setting rather by the interesting permanent collection. The museum uses to host temporary exhibitions.

In 2001, I saw there Sotheby's collection for paintings. I learnt about the exhibition by chance and saw the museum for first time. Happy to have discovered it. A great collection of all-eras' bills and posters too.

Anyway, till Sept. 9, Heinrich Simon's collection of Belgian modern at will be hosted there. Don't ask me who Simon is. I will investigate and report... So, collection includes works of Spilliaert; Rik Wouters (I like this one); Ensor; Permeke; Magritte; Delvaux (not my fave)...
