Welcome to the Middelheim Museum

The Middelheim Museum is a special place where art and nature go hand in hand.


Nieuwe collectiepresentatie

New presentation of artworks

The Middelheim Museum is breathing new life into its art park. By the end of 2023, the museum will look completely different. Many sculptures will be given a new, well thought-out place in the art park, along with better interpretation and signage. There will also be a new publicly accessible open-air repository for sculptures which are temporarily not displayed in the collection presentation. In the renewed presentation, extra attention is paid to the landscape elements and the special heritage value of the Middelheim site. Thus, people, art, nature and heritage will come even closer together.

New Masterpieces

With the List of Masterpieces, the Flemish Government protects unique cultural heritage that it deems rare and indispensable. Previously, seven works of art from the Middelheim Museum's collection had already been recognised as Masterpieces. Eighteen avant-garde and post-war sculptures have now been added to this list.


Return, Retrace, Replant

A performative procession by Wendy Morris
Saturday 24 June 2023 from 14:00 to 17:30

The procession Return, Retrace, Replant is a new performative work conceived by Wendy Morris (1960, Namibia) within a new 'Artistic Research Project' (AOP in Dutch). The procession is the culmination of a year of research conducted by Wendy Morris under the theme "Reading the Landscape," in which the Middelheim Museum commissions artists to explore the landscape of the art park.

Artist publications, a guide

After decades on the margins, the medium of artist publication is gaining popularity. Increasingly, artists are choosing this art form to express artistic ideas, and art collectors and museums are showing increasing interest in it. That is why the Middelheim Museum has initiated a subsidised, two-year project around the artists' publications in the museum library.
