Museum of Fine Arts

The Museum of Fine Arts (Dutch: Museum voor Schone Kunsten (MSK)) in Ghent, Belgium, is situated at the East side of the Citadelpark (near the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst). The museum holds a large permanent collection of art from the Middle Ages until mid 20th Century. The collection focuses on Flemish Art (Southern Netherlands) but also has several European, especially French paintings. It also has a large amount of sculptures.

Along with its permanent collection the museum organises temporary exhibitions (approximately 2 every year).
