“A visit is unmissable: they house collections depicting every civilisation on every continent,” says acting museum director Alexandra De Poorter. The collections are divided into four large ensembles: antiquity, non-European civilisations, national archaeology and European decorative arts. Currently showing at the Cinquantenaire
Museum until 12 February 2017 is the superb Ukiyo-e – The Finest Japanese Prints exhibition. Ukiyo-e means ‘pictures of the floating world’ and the term refers to transitoriness and fleeting pleasures. The Cinquantenaire Museum has one of the finest collections of Japanese prints in the world.
