Ive been in there, its one of the biggest buildings in the world. Don't know why noone really knows about it outside Belgium.

They had an exhibit on Chinese art - hanging HUGE scroll images of classical landscapes that filled the central space, literally ginormous paintings that were hundreds of feet high, that were lit up and looked like you could walk into. I cannot really convey how massive these looked. I have NO IDEA why that space was not filled with thousands of tourists, it was one of the most awe-inspiring, dramatic scenes man can create.

Because it's Brussels and Brussels is an underrated city?

Anyway, for those who like this enormous building and wonder how it looks inside, here are some pictures I took in 2010.

Amazing, you have any more?

I remember this being one of the most impressive places I've ever visited, like St Peter's in Rome just so overwhelmingly gigantic that it takes your breath away!

The outside is completely over the top, too, with a whole bunch of styles mixed together forming one monstrous mountain of a building.

I wish I could make a plea in this building. That would be a lawyer's dream.
