    . The BAM (Beaux-Arts Mons) is a museum that you really have to experience, hosting several exhibitions every year in some 2,000m². They give visitors the opportunity to explore an artist, an artistic movement or a theme connected with the museum’s collections, which boasts more than 15,000 works of art. The BAM is designed to offer a unique experience, a space in which to discover artistic creativity in all its forms, a living venue as well, where events are put on throughout the year. This unashamedly contemporary architectural project combines the functionality and rigour required of museums with aestheticism, as its architecture showcases the bright, light-filled spaces dedicated to transparency. In this year as European Capital of Culture, the BAM invites you to discover renowned artists including Van Gogh and Paul Verlaine. The BAM hosts two major exhibitions every year. With an exhibition space covering nearly 2,000m², it offers the visitors the chance to find out about an artist, an artistic movement or a theme connected to our collections. Faithful to its commitment to being accessible to all types of visitor, including in particular the under-privileged, the BAM puts on a range of activities alongside the main exhibitions. This means that members of the public can come to concerts in the exhibition rooms, dance performances and literary events. There are also a wide range of activities put on at partner organisations, such as films and plays. The collections, boasting more than 15,000 works of art, include a particularly wide range of 20th century pieces. All of this heritage is kept at the Artothèque, where all the museums belonging to the City of Mons store their collections. As well as international exhibitions, the permanent collections also have a place in this beautiful setting where a selection of works illustrating the diversity and quality of the museum collections can be admired. A fantastic representation of Belgian and international art from the second half of the 20th century
