GUIDES Passionate guides await you in the exhibition Expedition Egypt to discuss the exhibits and answer all your questions.
BEHIND THE SCENES The photographs presented in this screening were selected from the 14,000 photographic glass negatives made by Belgian Egyptologist Jean Capart and his collaborators during their expeditions. With a keen sense of photography, they documented the country of the Nile in all its facets. You will discover, among other things, the official opening of Tutankhamun’s burial chamber in 1923, but also the spectacular landscapes, ancient monuments and daily life of Egypt in a bygone era.

EXTRA-MUROS Together with the visitors, the artists of BARRA Movement shine a light upon the passions and the stories and rumours behind the bas relief of the human passions in the Horta’s Pavillon. With words, stories, stones and song they make the marble bas relief resonate in unexpected ways.

This is a project of Cinquantenaire 2030 in collaboration with the Museum of Art & History and with the support of the National Lottery.
