Art Museum of the Province of Hainaut (BPS22)

One of the largest art museums in Belgium

The BPS22 Art Museum of the Province of Hainaut is spread over 2,500 m² and is today one of the largest art museums in French-speaking Belgium. Its hybrid location, in the heart of Charleroi, consists of a raw industrial building and a white box perfectly adapted to museum standards.

The BPS22 offers a program of exhibitions and mediation actions focused on cultural and societal phenomena.

The Museum exhibits contemporary artists but can also mix styles and eras thanks to the rich art collection of the Province of Hainaut.


In a climate that fosters discussion and questions, with respect for the pace of each person, the visits under the guidance of a facilitator allow you to meet the works and share a moment of discovery, learning and awareness of art. In addition to classic tours, the BPS22 can offer tailor-made activities that allow you to combine curiosity and conviviality thanks to the cozy bar.
