Middelheim Museum

The museum and the surrounding open-air art offers an insight into the history of sculpture, starting with Rodin up to the present. In 1950, the city of Antwerp organized a successful international open-air sculpture exhibition in Middelheim Park. As a result, the expansive park became a permanent venue for creative beauty in the form of sculptures. After 50 years of collecting, the park now prides itself with an impressive collection of modern sculptures. Next to the permanent collection, the museum also hosts temporary exhibitions twice a year. The Middelheim Museum offers tailored programmes suited to an individual or group visit.
