M Leuven opening great success: sold out first week and visit from Minister-President Jan Jambon

M Leuven reopened today and was one of the first museums to do so. It is presenting the brand-new exhibition ‘Rodin, Meunier & Minne’. Online ticket sales opened on Friday 15 May. It was a great success because all the timeslots up to and including 24 May are sold out. Minister-President of Flanders Jan Jambon was one of the reopened museum’s first visitors.

“A lot of hard work has been done behind the scenes to ensure that visitors can be welcomed in the safest possible circumstances, without the museum feeling constricting. We currently provide more square metres per person than the legal minimum. We allow a maximum of four people into the museum per timeslot. A new timeslot begins every quarter of an hour and we provide the exhibition room folders digitally with the e-tickets,” chair of the board of governors Denise Vandevoort says.

Since ticket sales opened on Friday 15 May, almost 900 tickets have been sold. The first week, until Sunday 24 May, is completely sold out. “All the timeslots for this week are fully booked. It is clear that the public is eager to enjoy real, offline museum experiences. We are very happy that we can again offer such experiences at M. And how: we are presenting the brand-new exhibition ‘Rodin, Meunier & Minne”, says Peter Bary, general director of M.

Minister-President of the Flemish Government and Flemish Minister of Culture Jan Jambon: “It is a great pleasure to see that the museums of Flanders are doing everything possible to be able to receive visitors again in a safe and pleasant context. Here at M Leuven, they are doing so with a major new exhibition that presents the work of Auguste Rodin beside that of our countrymen Constantin Meunier and Georges Minne. It is clear that the public was eagerly awaiting this reopening, as the successful ticket sales demonstrate.”
