Partners and sponsors

The Middelheim Museum receives support from various partners and sponsors for its activities.

The Middelheim Museum relies on the support of public authorities, media partners and private partners.


The Flemish authorities

The Middelheim Museum is a nationally recognised museum and therefore receives an annual endowment from the Government of Flanders. It can also apply for grants under the Arts Decree for new acquisitions, educational kits or community outreach projects.


Tourism Flanders-Brussels subsidises the Middelheim Museum in the frame of its Flemish art cities – Brussels incentive programme, investing in projects which increase the tourist appeal of the art cities. The emphasis is on projects that contribute to a qualitative physical and virtual international multilingual reception and the development of projects that contribute to enhancing the museum’s positioning and identity.
