New museum this autumn for Louvain-la-Neuve
Belgium’s first large-scale university museum, Musée L, opens this autumn in Louvain-la-Neuve. Presenting a dialogue between scientific collections and art works, its inauguration in an important heritage building is scheduled for 18 November.
The Catholic University of Louvain (UCL) institution occupies a space of more than 4,000m, in Place des Sciences. Built by architect André Jacqmain, it was one of the first constructions following the linguistic separation of the University of Leuven in 1968.
The museum will house a collection of more than 32,000 natural history, science and art items from around the world.
