From 1 February until 12 March 2020, the Museum of Fine Arts Ghent hosted the largest Jan van Eyck exhibition in history. During these weeks, nearly 130,000 visitors came visited the exhibition. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 the museum was forced to close the exhibition earlier than planned. The MSK announced yesterday that a virtual tour of the exhibition is now available.

Visit Flanders and the MSK joined forces with Belgian virtual reality company Poppr, to develop an online 360° virtual tour of the Van Eyck galleries. Thirteen rooms from the exhibition are accessible, allowing you to discover over 120 masterpieces. The website is available in multiple languages and offers high-quality images, readable wall texts, and audio guides for adults and children.
