Nocturnes in the museums of Brussels

14 September 2017 - 07 December 2017

The Brussels Museums Nocturnes are back for their 17th edition. From September 14th to December 7th 2017, several museums will open their doors every Thursday night from 5pm to 10pm. This will be the perfect opportunity to get to know more about the cultural wealth of Brussels in a different setting, at an attractive price of 3 € (or 1,50 € for those younger than 26 years old).

In total, 68 museums will offer guided tours, workshops, demonstrations, meetings with curators every week. Snacks and drinks will also be served in many museums. Participating museums include, among others, the Musical Instruments Museum, the Halle Gate, Train World and the Belgian Chocolate Village.

Some museums will even open for free, in particular the Egmont Palace which will participate in the Nocturnes for the second time, opening its doors on November the 16th. The visitors will therefore be able to visit, during the evening, an important symbol of the Belgian diplomacy.

The opening night of the Nocturnes will be held in Molenbeek on Thursday 14th September during a large free vernissage organized  in the Museum of La Fonderie and in the MIMA.
