Van Eyck: An Optical Revolution MSK Ghent Virtual Tour

The largest Jan van Eyck exhibition ever

From February 1st until March 12th 2020, the MSK hosted the largest Jan van Eyck exhibition in history. During these weeks, nearly 130,000 visitors came closer to Van Eyck than was ever possible before, but unfortunately the COVID-19 crisis forced us to close the exhibition earlier. You can find a retrospective on the Van Eyck website.

Visit Flanders and the MSK joined forces with Belgian virtual reality company Poppr, to develop an online 360° virtual tour of the Van Eyck galleries. Enter the largest Van Eyck exhibition ever directly from the comfort of your home! While scrolling through the 360° images, discover 13 museum galleries with over 120 masterpieces. The audio guide for adults or children is your personal guide through the exhibition.

VISIT FLANDERS also filmed a guided visit with Till-Holger Borchert, Director of the Museums Bruges and one of the curators of the exhibition. Discover with him some of the masterpieces on display in Ghent. Take the virtual tour here!
