Don’t miss the last few days of our exhibition, which is on until 11 November. During the closing weekend, the BELvue Museum will be bathed in the atmosphere of Africa: enjoy insects for tea, hear the story of Stanley’s diary or to have your photo taken with Dr Livingstone!
The care taken in reproducing the costumes, textiles and accessories in the portraits of the Vekemans family is not without significance. This is the subject of an exhibition in the Mayer van den Bergh Museum of Antwerp, as part of the event "Kunst Privé in heel Vlaanderen". From 13 October until 3 November 2013.
A workshop on the subject of Stanley and Livingstone was held on 16 September 2013, within the framework of the exhibition « Dr Livingstone, I presume ». The event was a joint initiative of the Royal Museum of Central Africa and the King Baudouin Foundation Heritage Fund.
On 29 September 2013, Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis and Prince Lorenz, Honorary President of the Heritage Fund, paid a visit to the Royal Fine Arts Museums of Belgium and to the Saint Ursule Chapel in the Church of Notre Dame du Sablon.
