The present day site with its cottages around a large tree-lined lawn has remained unchanged since the 17th C.The Artificial Light in Art Centre houses a range of paintings, sculptures and works of art which focus on artificial light. There is all sorts to see in this unusual museum, from light bulbs and neon to black light and strip lighting. The museum continues the light theme which flows throughout the city, thanks largely to the role of the Philips museum over the decades.
The Belgian Comic Strip Centre is housed in a charming art nouveau building designed by the creator of Lucky Luke, Spirou, the Smurfs and Gaston Lagaffe - Victor Horta. In the museum you will see how cartoons are made, learn about production techniques and see antique cartoon strips of many recognisable characters.The collections of the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum span the periods from the Middle Ages up to the present day with old art, prints and drawings, decorative arts and modern art all represented. Old masters such as Rubens and Rembrandt are present alongside modern European artists including Dali and Magritte.The Garden has always played a major role in the coordination of floristic research in Belgium and Europe. The participation in the publication of a distribution atlas of the flora of Belgium and Luxembourg, long before the same type of works appeared in other European countries, was a culminating point.
