The Brussels Royal Palace opens its doors

25 July 2019 - 25 August 2019

From 23 July to 25 August, the Brussels Royal Palace will be open to the public

Built in the 19th century during the reign of William I, King of the Netherlands, the Royal Palace is the seat of the monarchy.  It is home to the King's offices, but also prestigious private rooms for receiving heads of state and other important guests.

It has been traditional for the Royal Palace to open to the public for the summer. In addition to the prestigious private rooms, this year, visitors can explore several exhibitions.

Reflecting current events, the 50th anniversary of Man's first steps on the Moon will be the subject of an exhibition dedicated to “The Moon: Between Dream and Reality". This is the result of a collaboration between the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, the Federal Scientific Institutes, the National Geographic Institute and the Federal Science Policy Office. It is an opportunity to discover artworks and research objects.

Technopolis, the Flemish Science Centre, is also presenting an exhibition on the theme of physics, "The Wonders of Science".

And to end, the visitor can delve into the exhibition "Sovereignly Clothed. Royal Uniforms".
