Belgium has been hiding a treasure for 600 years


Direct ancestors of Charles V, the Dukes of Burgundy ruled Brussels in the 15th century. As astute politicians and cultured patrons, they built up a moving treasure trove that still fascinates today: the Library of the Dukes of Burgundy. Simultaneously objects of art, propaganda tools, instruments of learning, relaxation and piety, these unique manuscripts reflect the tastes, aspirations and dreams of their owners.
Since September 2020, a brand-new museum has presented this exceptional collection of manuscripts and the era in which they were created.
