Brussels Museums Shut Down After City’s Terrorist Attacks

Brussels Museums, public galleries, and libraries are all currently shut down in the wake of the blasts at Zaventem airport and Maelbeek metro station that claimed the lives of at least twenty-six people, according to the Art Newspaper’s Anny Shaw.

The Brussels Center for Fine Arts, Bozar, said the museum is closed “due to today’s tragic events,” and that reopening would be considered on a “day-by-day basis.” And the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium’s website reads: “In the context of the current terrorist threat (level four) in the region of Brussels, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium are closed at the moment.” Meanwhile, the Cinquantenaire Museum and the Magritte Museum announced their closure via Twitter.
