#100masters masterpieces

100masters logoFor the #100masters campagne the mim puts forward 10 exceptional pieces in the collection. You can follow a trail leading you through the museum passing by every one of them and giving you a little story about them. There is also a treasure hunt for children. At each stop there is a mission to accomplish. The correct answers lead to the discovery of the "treasure".

A comittee appointed by the Brussels Museum Council selected the 100 official masterpieces. 2 of them are at the mim. We added our own to complete the group of 10.
