Panoramic photo ops at the MIM

In the first photo the Magritte museum is shown to the left and the MIM, the Musical Instrument Museum is the black building "Old England", which is a prominent example of Art Nouveau architecture. 
The MIM today has a restaurant on the top floor which offers a awesome panorama over Brussels and now that it has stopped raining this is the time! 
The mailboxes date from the times when the Museum shop building hosted a bank and I also wanted to show you the beautiful entrance doors.


  1. dat restaurant kan ik aanbevelen, prachtig uitzicht over de stad heb je daar

  2. Heel veel 'kunst' dicht bij mekaar, Anni !

  3. Veel mooie architectuur bij mekaar!

  4. Wonderful, interesting captures as always, Anni! Hope you're enjoying a great week and that you have more blue skies than we have in Seattle??? when does summer arrive?? or did it???


  5. La classe !
    J'ai fait mes études à Nancy où l'art nouveau a triomphé aussi. Toute une époque que l'on aurait du mal à recréer. Quand je pense que parfois on n'a pas conservé comme cela a failli être le cas de la brasserie l'Excelsior à Nancy (classée aujourd'hui)...

  6. Wow mooi en blijkbaar meer dan de moeite waard op eens te bezichtigen @->--

  7. Beautiful architecture and a great view, Anni!

  8. Ciao, ricambio la tua gradita visita.Molto bello il tuo blog, mi sono unita ai tuoi lettori fissi e ti seguirò. A presto.

  9. Wow, that Old England building is really something special.
    I'm glad that you pointed out that those are mailboxes. I thought they were top loading washing machines (I know, it's been a hard day at work).
    I wonder if the Gresham on that sign is related to Gresham College in London?
    And finally, those doors are very pretty indeed!

  10. a great building it is!
    How comes we've never met in the restaurant????

  11. I love art nouveau architecture, especially its northern forms. great pics!

  12. Hallo Anni,
