“Update: Closed till 2017”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

This museum is still being reworked. They just finished the stockroom so all these old paintings are safe. Now it's time to get the work done. Iagree with Charming_Karl and like to add not to forget to visit the neighbourhood anyway when you're in the mood for a good meal or a drink.

“Closed for renovation - but don't lose heart!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

While the KMSK continues to be closed for renovation, several exhibits in other places around Antwerp are showing major parts of the museum's collection. For example, the MAS had many of the Flemish Primitives from the KMSK on display when we were in Antwerp in September. So if you do a little research before you come, you will be able to see some of the extensive excellent collection of the museum.

“This is a Seriously Good Collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Currently undergoing internal renovation this collection [available for free now and again] is a superbly curated collection of Belgium - and lots of other Renaissance onwards art -- right up to Magritte et al.
There is an original, precious Van Eyjk there and much more besides that shows not only the Flemish renaissance and thereafter its tradition, but the acuity of Belgians of previous generations in collecting superb works from elsewhere
