Treasures presented by cultural mascot Vlieg

Do you see what I see?
Ongoing summer programme of activities to be completed independently by the whole family. Each and every day, our imagination is tickled, as it were, by images. Everyone responds differently to these stimuli. Do you see what I see? Or do you see something completely different? How can our works of art lead you to new insights?

Imagination Lab

The Imagination Lab is a creative oasis amidst the museum’s many rooms. Children, young people and adults can experiment here with collages and assemblages, build structures, create a tableau vivant around the figure of James Ensor, draw a self-portrait at one of the easels, and much more. The assignments are regularly changed to reflect the exhibitions and collection presentations. The Imagination Lab gives the museum’s visitors an opportunity to creatively and actively process what they have just seen at the museum, with the aim of discovering the art on exhibit from another perspective. You can visit the Imagination Lab at no extra charge and without a reservation.
