Art in the park

In addition to the sculptures in the museum park, which give an overview of more than one hundred years of sculpture, the museum also regularly hosts solo and group exhibition as well as developing themed exhibitions with sculptures from the museum’s permanent collection. The park itself is also a prime example of landscape art.


Art on the Move

In 2023 and 2024, a total of 224 works of art will be given a new home in the art park and at the open-air depot. In the process, some parts of the park will be further upgraded in close partnership with the city of Antwerp's Department for green spaces. There are also new works, including a striking fountain sculpture by Camille Henrot. This new themed presentation brings art and nature even closer together.  

Permanent collection

The Middelheim Museum collection features approximately 1800 works of art, collected over a period of more than 50 years. Works date from around 1900 to the present and provide an excellent international overview of modern and contemporary art.
