Commencing on 7th June and running until 7th January, the BELvue Museum in Brussels will showcase a captivating exhibition featuring art nouveau masterpieces from

the esteemed collection of the King Baudouin Foundation. The exhibition will be free for all visitors to enjoy.

The collection encompasses a diverse range of furniture, artwork, jewelry, book covers, and more. Visitors will have the opportunity to admire these remarkable pieces while delving into the fascinating stories and anecdotes associated with each object.

In addition to the exhibition, the museum has curated a series of exclusive events related to the collection.

Group tours, conducted in multiple languages, are also available for those who wish to explore the exhibition together.

The BELvue Museum itself is a repository of Belgium's history, housed within seven themed rooms: democracy, prosperity, solidarity, pluralism, migration, language, and Europe.
