The Gardens of the van Buuren Museum - PART 1

A few years ago I visited the Van Buuren Museum and Gardens but I only had a phone camera which did not take very good photos, so this year I decided to go back. This time I went with a camera but decided to forgo the Museum part since photography inside the house while it is permitted in the garden.

The van Buuren Museum and Gardens are located in the Brussels Commune (Township) of Uccle. The Museum itself is in the Art Deco house of former banker philanthropist David van Buuren and his wife Alice and includes collection of works of art from the 16th to the 20th century.

 The gardens which were laid out by landscapists Jules Buyssens and René Pechère include a labyrinth and rose garden.
