Guided tour of the KBR museum

Six centuries ago, Brussels belonged to the rich and powerful Dukes of Burgundy. Skilled politicians and cultured patrons, they established a stirring treasure: a unique and fascinating collection of manuscripts. These masterpieces, which have survived the ravages of time and of history, have been looked after by KBR and can now be admired at the KBR museum.
