As of March 2022, the Museum Hof van Busleyden will be undergoing reconstruction. A thorough restoration of the exterior of the 16th century city palace is necessary to be able to continue presenting the valuable works in the museum.
The planned outdoor restoration of Museum Hof van Busleyden will involve dust, vibrations, changes in humidity and temperature. As a result, the valuable works of art in the museum rooms, including 14 Flemish masterpieces, will be temporarily moved to a part of the museum where no works are taking place. For the duration of the worksthe permanent exhibition of the museum is therefore not accessible to the public.
Museum Hof van Busleyden is currently closed for restoration. In spring 2024, the museum will reopen with a renewed permanent exhibition and the exposition Knights of the Golden Fleece.
