“We are not just talking about an update here. Everything is 100 per cent new,” enthuses museum communication
manager Mathilde Oechsner. The museum previously presented Belgian history – from 1830 to present day – in
chronological order. Around three years in the making, this new permanent exhibition has a completely different approach. Now, Belgium’s story is told through seven different themes, with one theme per room. These themes are democracy, prosperity, solidarity, pluralism, migration, language and Europe.
