Would you like to donate a work of art made in Brussels or an item that is representative of the city?

We thank you, in advance, for your generosity.

Please send an email to our generic email address with a detailed description and a picture of each piece of art (object, condition, historical date, documentation and reference material).

Your proposal will be handled as soon as possible.

When adding to its collections, the museum reserves the right to make a selection based on documentary, aesthetic and technical criteria.

The Museums of the City of Brussels form a network of enriching and fascinating museum institutions that retrace, each in its own way, the history of Brussels: the Brussels City Museum, the Fashion & Lace Museum, the GardeRobe Manneken-Pis, the Sewer Museum.

Our philanthropic actions are based on three pillars:

  • the acquisition of significant works
  • the restoration of works from museum collections
  • the development of cultural mediation tools aimed at young people.The King Baudouin Foundation supports museums: the donations made by our patrons are tax deductible. A fund has been established to administer these donations – the “Friends of the Brussels City Museums Fund”, managed by the Foundation.

For € 60 per year, you can join our “Circle of Patrons of the Brussels City Museums”. By joining our Circle, you participate in the fostering the influence of our capital as well as becoming an active member of the cultural family that supports our projects. Thus, you will become a privileged partner and will receive exclusive information about the openings and ins and outs of each of our museums.

You can make your donation directly on the King Baudouin Foundation platform on a page that is dedicated to our museums: you can find it here

Donations of at least 40 euros made to the King Baudouin Foundation result in a tax reduction of 45% of the amount actually paid, which is shown on the certificate which is sent at the end of February of the following year.
