Proud of its roots and collection, M dares to experiment. The combination of contemporary art and old masters makes the museum unique in Flanders. Visual culture then and now, all under one roof.
M is a museum and visual arts platform for and by people, which makes meaningful connections throughout time, with society and between artistic disciplines. M pursues its international ambitions from within the knowledge-based city of Leuven.
M was founded and is subsidized by the City of Leuven, with the legal status of an Autonomous Municipal Company. Moreover, the museum is recognized by the Heritage and Arts Decree of the Flemish Government. The museum actively mobilizes its collection. In addition to fulfilling its foundational responsibilities such as collecting, preserving, researching and disclosing the collection, the museum plays an important role in the contemporary arts scene.
