What you must know: Modern and contemporary museum in Brussels! 

Council of Ministers has given the go-ahead for plans to renovate the Vanderborght stores, right off of Brussels’s central plaza. The buildings will house the modern and contemporary collections of the Musées royaux des Beaux-Arts. The city will contribute over two million dollars to the external work on the building, and will lease the buildings to the museum for thirty years. “A modern and contemporary art is essential to the cultural influence of Brussels and is also the economy and tourism,” said the city’s alderman of culture, Karine Lalieux. The new museum is expected to open its doors in 2016.
