Grand Place Brussels(c)

Brussels has more than 80 museums, covering subjects ranging from chocolate to fine arts, from beer to comics, from musical instruments to flowers, ensuring something to suit every taste.

Brussels Card

The Brussels Card is a great way for cultural visitors to see all the Belgian capital has on offer. The card includes free entry to over 40 museums in Brussels, discounts to tourist attractions, guided tours, shops, restaurants, bars & clubs and more! Choose from 24/48/72 hour card durations, whether you want to include public transport or a hop-on-hop-off sightseeing bus: it couldn't be simpler. 

Art & Museums

Magritte Museum Brussels

Highlights include the Museum of Fine Arts (do see the paintings by Brueghel), the Magritte Museum (Ceci n'est pas une pipe), the Royal Museum of Central Africa (for an excellent overview of a fascinating continent) and the Museum of Natural Sciences (for the largest dinosaur collection in Europe).

Kill two birds with one stone and also visit the Musical Instruments Museum and the Comic Strip Museum (think Tintin and Smurfs), not only for the internal exhibits but also to admire the stunning Art Nouveau buildings of Paul Saintenoy they are located in.

UNESCO Heritage

Art Nouveau

If design is a passion, you really should not miss the dedicated Horta Museum in St. Gilles and, while in the area, Flagey, an Art Deco building, once home to the national broadcasting corporation, now a chic arts center and a trendy café.

Expo 58

One of the world's most peculiar landmarks is The Atomium, a 338½ feet high representation of an iron crystal, magnified 165 billion times.
Built for the World Expo in 1958, it's a classic piece of 20th century design. Recently restored in preparation for its 50th birthday, it's a great place to visit for panoramic views of the city. Better still, go eat in the restaurant at night, located in the top sphere, and admire the twinkling lights of Brussels.
