“informative and well laid out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

ELT Mesens - Dada/Surrealism exhibition is a feat to the senses, eyes, ears and mind will all be stimulated. Very well curated with adequate signage and information too. Our visit was unexpected delight.

“Always worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Very interesting collection (Spilliaert, Ensor, ... Tuymans), intriguing thematic exhibitions, e.g. the one on Belgian surrealism focused on Mesens. High didactic value. Nice bookshop, a children's corner (and entertainment). Surprising architecture. One downside: the guards chit chat a lot in a disturbing way.

“Needs more on Ensor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

The work of the local artist was well worth seeing but there needed to be more of his work, more on his life in Ostend. The rest of the museum was boring and too expensive for what was on offer

“Mu.zee Oostende”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

This is a review for Mu.zee Oostende. The provincial Modern Art Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts in Oostende fusioned in 2008 creating this new entity : Mu.zee.. I think this is probably the best reason to visit Oostende, it contains a wonderful collection of Belgium artists and not suprisingly is almost empty. When I visit the museum they were preparing the next exhibition, so I only can visit the permanent collection which was verry interesting. So, if you are tired of the "Belgian beach" I would recommend to visit this museum.

“sculpture and paintings to make you think”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Lots of interesting work in the current exhibitions. Not so keen on Ensor but enjoyed the Philip Aguire y Otegri exhibition and some of the Leon Spillaert works from the 1900s which look as if they belong in this century.
