  • Very interesting if you want to learn more about the history of Brussels, each floor has a different theme and lots of resources. Affordable prices, in particular thanks to reduced and student rates

  • Three level museum with lots of cool art, architecture and history. I really like the statues and things from olden Belgian times. It’s semi hidden in the Grand Place but you can find it if you look closely. Would recommended you come check it out!
  • This museum is unbelievably cool, including the building itself. It’s free with the Brussels Card - something I cannot recommend enough if you’re visiting the city for a couple days, as you can also add on an all-inclusive transit option for fairly cheap. It really gave me a greater appreciation for the city after learning more of its fascinating history.
