The Digital Museum

The Digital Museum has been created with the digitization of the collections of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. The department today manages various projects related to the digitization of works of art.

Digitization, whether for conservation, dissemination, economic exploitation or knowledge of collections, is today central to the different art and culture heritage professions.

By building an entire department dedicated to this area, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium express their intention to position themselves as key players and develop national and international collaboration.

The Digital Museum manages research projects related to the digitization of works, helps provide public online access to the collections via the FABRITIUS (Fine Arts BRussels InTernet & Intranet USers) and LOANA (LOANed Artworks) catalogues, and supervises the Photographic service of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.
