There’s no denying that Banksy is one of the most famous artists working right now, but it can be quite tough to see lots of his stuff in one place. Because Banksy usually leaves his creations out in public on walls and buildings, much of his art doesn’t really lend itself to being exhibited in a conventional gallery.

But that hasn’t stopped an enormous Banksy museum from opening in Brussels, Belgium. The World of Banksy boasts over 130 recreations of the artist’s works, ranging from some of his most iconic pieces to new works, like those recently produced in Ukraine. 

What’s more is that the World of Banksy hasn’t just reproduced Banksy artworks – it’s also recreated their original surroundings. Whether on gardens or hotels, prisons or schools, you'll be able to get a feel of the artwork in its original setting. On top of that, there are various prints and photographs of Banksy works. Here are a few shots of what the museum looks like.

If you’re a fan of the elusive artist, The World of Banksy makes for a pretty decent day out. You can find the museum on the Rue de Laeken – just north of Brussels’ city centre – and adult tickets cost €14 (£12, $14.80), though there are concessions available. You can find out more and buy tickets on the official website here
