Reception Halls


With a surface area of nearly 780 sqm, the Grand Narthex can accommodate receptions of up to 750 people. For dinners, it can host up to 500 guests. Architecturally speaking, the Grand Narthex is one of the most beautiful halls in the museum.

The Apamea Hall can accommodate receptions for up to 500 guests. For dinners, the capacity is 250 seated persons. The impressive reconstruction of the central section of the Great Colonnade of Apamea (Syria), reminiscent of the Belgian archaeological excavations carried out on this site since 1930, is the main feature of this hall. From there, a magnificent view opens up to the large 'mosaic of the great hunt' from the residence of the governor of Syria Secunda (5th - 6th century AD).



The room called "Cloister" was erected before the First World War in a neo-Gothic style. It is based on models belonging to the French architectural landscape of the late 12th and early 13th centuries, as well as the Brabantine Gothic style of the 15th and 16th centuries. The space can accommodate 150 people (for receptions or dinners). This area opens onto a majestic inner garden and houses pre-Romanesque and Romanesque sculptures originating from our most important production centers. The 12th-century baptismal fonts are particularly spectacular.

Your guests can also enjoy the garden...
