De Garage

As of March 2022, the Museum Hof van Busleyden will be undergoing restoration. The permanent exhibition will therefore not be accessible for some time. More information .

Tip: De Garage does not have an exhibition at the moment. Visit our contemporary art exhibition in Museum Hof van Busleyden.

Gap in the Clouds


De Garage became a part of Museum Hof van Busleyden in 2020. It is a contemporary-art space, which places established names and young artists centre stage. This approach ties in perfectly with the spirit of Museum Hof van Busleyden as a place where people are central and space is for experimentation.

De Garage is in the heart of Mechelen, opposite Saint-Rumbold’s Cathedral. In the temporary exhibitions, which take place four or five times a year, you will discover the work of contemporary artists in all their diversity. Be amazed by the current exhibitions, browse through the shop or learn more about the work of upcoming artists.

You can buy a separate ticket for De Garage, or a standard ticket for both the museum and De Garage. The two locations are within walking distance. Please note: the De Garage and the museum have different opening times.
