Plan your visit
To get the most out of your visit, read the general visitor information in advance.
Now that the corona crisis has paralyzed social life for the most part, many people don’t get to go to their favourite places, such as in the Middelheim Museum. That is why we bring the art park right to your home.
Collection pavilion
In the pavilion, you can (re)discover hidden works from the collection of the Middelheim Museum. Just over 80% of the works of art in the collection are stored in depots that are closed to visitors. Because the museum wants to offer maximum access to the collections in all their diversity, it has now transformed one such closed repository into an open display area. An initial selection of artworks has been unpacked there and put on display for the public.
Discover our highlights
A number of artworks in our wider collection are definitely considered relevant for art history. Each of them are artistic highlights in their own way, illustrating a specific movement or development in the field of sculpture.
The Congoville exhibition took place from May 29 to October 3, 2021. This group exhibition was curated by guest curator Sandrine Colard (BE/DRC). This exhibition and other future projects fit within a broader development of the museum towards greater polyphony and inclusion.
