Friends of M

Art needs good friends. The M-bassadors and M-art patron are close to M’s heart. Our friends are curious art lovers who get an insider view of everything that happens at M. They also take part in inspiring and enriching events such as guided tours by curators, staff members and guides, excursions to art locations, in-depth lectures… Moreover, they have access to a platform where they can engage in dialogue with other friends, artists and the experts at M during the many activities we organize.

Art made to measure

As a museum, we make it a point of honour to make art as accessible as possible. And that also means developing tailored presentations. M offers artistic experiences to all kinds of visitors, both young and old. But also, for example, to groups of colleagues, friends and families.
