Musée Fin-de-Siècle Museum
The Fin-de-Siècle Museum is dedicated to the 1900s, when Brussels, the capital of Europe, was a unique artistic crossroads and the capital of Art Nouveau. This sanctuary of cultural history hosts paintings, drawings, watercolours, prints, sculptures, photographs, films, models and decorative objets d'art.
Famous visual artists like Constantin Meunier, James Ensor, Henri Evenepoel, Fernand Khnopff, Léon Spilliaert and Georges Minne testify to the effervescent activity of this period, reflected also in all other creative fields: literature, opera, music, architecture, photography and poetry (Maurice Maeterlinck, Emile Verhaeren, Octave Maus, Victor Horta, Henry Van de Velde, Maurice Kufferath, Guillaume Lekeu and others). Art Nouveau architecture is evoked by means of a 3D reconstruction of six buildings Art nouveau.
Located at the heart of Brussels, where between 1884 and 1914 the exhibitions of Les XX and La Libre Esthétique made the city one of the artistic capitals of the late nineteenth century, this museum is distinguished by its multidisciplinary nature, through a partnership formed with the Royal Library, the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie, the Royal Museums of Art and History, Cinematek, the Bibliotheca Wittockiana, the King Baudouin Foundation and the Brussels Capital Region for housing the Gillion Crowet collection, which is one of the museum's highlights.
About the rotation of artworks
The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium possesses a rich collection of works on paper, which mainly consists of drawings, pastels and watercolors from the years 1868-1914. Our structural partner institutions, the print room and the music department of the KBR, the collection of 20th-century art from the RMAH and the archives of la Monnaie, also have a rich and specific collection that is complementary to ours. All these collections demonstrate the importance of the techniques on paper during this period. Because of their sensitivity to light, these works cannot be permanently shown to the public. That is why these works are shown in specific parts of the exhibition route, each time on a specific theme, and the set-up is replaced every six months, in accordance with the strict protection guidelines.

The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium are preparing for an ambitious and necessary renovation project in 2023. Although the official start of the operations as such is not planned before 2025, some rooms will already be reallocated this spring 2023. As of 3 April, the floors housing the Fin-de-Siècle Museum will no longer welcome the public and will be transformed into storage areas. Nevertheless, the jewels of the Fin-de-Siècle Museum will remain visible to our visitors: they will be presented in the form of "focuses" in other areas of the museum and on a rotating basis, but also through extramural projects with Belgian and international partners. We invite you to visit the 'exhibitions' and 'news' sections of our website to stay informed.
