Everything is ready for The World of Bruegel in Black and White!

The panels opposite the entrance to the general reading room have been removed. Sunlight is streaming in and, to the left, you can see the new lift.

We are working on the lighting in the rotunda of the Palace of Charles of Lorraine.

The exhibition is beginning to take shape. The display cases for the prints have been installed: a metamorphosis is taking place inside the rooms of the Palace of Charles of Lorraine.


15 July 2019

New access ramps, new ceilings: we are working hard on a new passageway between the two parts of the building. The corridor to the Archives et Musée de la Littérature (AML) on the third floor is also getting a makeover.


3 July 2019

The exhibition space is still getting its much needed make-over, but we are also preparing the next step: the setup of The World of Bruegel in Black and White. The displays for the prints are under construction, as well as walls and other visual elements. Things are looking very promising indeed.

Demolition works have started. The noise can be disruptive at times, especially as works are taking place near the General Reading Room. This is an inevitable part of the renovation project. We do everything we can to finish this part of the works as soon as possible.

Preparations are in full swing.

One of the Coronelli globes has to be moved: it has been on display near the entrance for years. With a diameter of 113 cm, moving this object is quite a logistical challenge…


Work is progressing quickly.
