Guided tour of Museum Hof van Busleyden
From March 2022 onwards, the exterior of the museum will be undergoing thorough restoration. That is necessary in order to be able to continue to present the valuable works in the museum. The permanent exhibition will therefore not be accessible until the autumn of 2023. The museum will, however, remain open with two top exhibitions in the exhibition space, with contemporary art in De Garage and with museum experiences at historic locations in the city.
Scheduled Exhibitions 2022 - 2023:
- May 20 - August 28, 2022: Gap in the Clouds – Ricardo Brey in Museum Hof van Busleyden
- October 28, 2022 – June 25, 2023: Verborgen Parels.

Welcome to the Museum Hof van Busleyden! Step into this majestic and magnificent Renaissance palace in Mechelen, the capital of the Burgundian Netherlands. Follow in the footsteps of Hiëronymus van Busleyden, Margaret of Austria, Erasmus and Thomas More. Here they met to exchange ideas and reflect on the changing world of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. An era in which everything changed and in which man was considered the centre of the universe. Now, as then, this palace is a meeting place, where new ideas are bornand art is collected and displayed. The story is far from finished.
