About Musee Wiertz, Brussels

Antoine Wiertz was a 19th century painter, sculptor and writer. He was one of the most controversial artists of his time, with bizarre themes and unusual painting methods. This museum, which houses a majority of his works, is part of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. Some have said Wiertz is the worst painter to have an exclusive a government-funded museum. That said, his works are certainly startling, and he was a prolific artist, painting many gigantic canvasses. Who knows, you may just like him.

Musee Wiertz, Brussels Reviews - Write a Review

  • A real hidden gem when it comes to art museums in Brussels is the Wiertz museum. It is hidden away in an old house between European parliament and the natural history museum. It is free and only a couple of rooms so if you are in the area make sure you stop for a look. The grand hall has some astonishingly beautiful paintings which deserves to be seen.

  • An understated museum with so many civilizations too choose from. A day is not enough

  • there was no pictures off me

  • OMG! A hidden gem. This museum is an adventure. 50 meters of the European Parliament, where everything is new and shiny, I found this beautiful museum with Wiertz's work. His paintings are enormous and very impressive, but the building, the architecture of these giant rooms is overwhelming, and is so strange that not a lot of EU workers, or other know their way to this 19th century paradise.

  • Honestly beautiful.
