DESIGN MUSEUM BRUSSELS

Established after the Atomium’s acquisition of the Plasticarium collection in December 2014, the Museum offers an innovative and surprising insight on plastic design from the fifties to the present (permanent exhibition / Plasticarium) and on other forms of design through other periods, expressions, materials and themes (temporary exhibitions). The Museum, it is also an auditorium with about 400 seats and an educational and cultural service with activities designed for children, teens and school groups. Lectures and screenings, in connection with the themes that are explored, enrich the museum’s program of activities. Through exhibitions, guided tours, workshops and lectures, the ADAM aims to ensure that design is intelligible to one and all. The project is built with 10 principles in mind such as: making best use of the existing qualities, outside and inside; organising functions around existing structures; a simple, adaptable and reliable exhibition system; integrating stock into the exhibition; conceptual links between the objects; standard simple materials to let the colourful collection stand out.

Kinepolis Brussel

At Kinepolis Brussels you experience the movie like nowhere else!

Kinepolis Brussels expands the traditional cinema experience to a wider universe of films and entertainment. This cinema has played a spearhead role thanks to countless visual, sound and conceptual innovations. Numerous events as well as films from other cultures punctuate the cinematographic life of Kinepolis Brussels.

If you wish to broaden your cinematographic experience, come and discover a film in IMAX (with its gigantic screen of more than 600m2, your film will be more intense) or in 4DX (which combines the movements of the seats with special sensory effects such as wind, rain, fog, snow, smells and light in perfect synchronization with the actions of the film on the screen). The combined ticket is valid for standard films, excluding supplements (cosy seat, 3D, Imax, 4DX, etc.)

Train World

Schaerbeek station is situated in the middle of the Belgian railway network. Based in the heart of Europe, it lies on the route of Belgium’s very first railway track, between Brussels and Mechelen. It is a true gem in Belgian railway architecture. The railway garden connects it with a new industrial hangar. Together with this new museum complex in the form of a saw tooth shape, the Schaerbeek station represents a wonderful symbiosis of old and new in the Art Nouveau heart of Schaerbeek. You are most welcome to visit both stations, whose plans date from 1887 and 1913, and which have been completely restored. Each time you’ll immediately see how the station architecture meets the new needs of its passengers. Find out how the mythical train was, and remains, an inspiration for many film-makers, artists and writers. And discover more about life behind the ticket counter. As in days gone by you can still enjoy a snack in the old station restaurant.

Brewery Timmermans

Once upon a time, it seemed like everyone brewed beer in Belgium.
Professional brewers shared their knowledge with private individuals whose brewing installation was located in their living room, with farmers who had their hands brew on quiet days and with abbeys who claimed their brews had medicinal properties. Depending on their region, brewers used different ingredients in varying quantities, which explains why so many regional beers emerged.

Planète Chocolat

Your guests will attend a Live Chocolate Show (± 30 minutes) whilst being seated comfortably. This will explain the origin of cacao as well as the composition and production process of chocolate with the active participation of the audience. This is followed by a practical explanation of the molding of pralines. This will all happen around the artisanal production workshop – your guests can therefore see the Master Chocolatiers at work while they attend the show. Each visitor will receive individually packed pralines to taste at home. Good news for your invitees: the degustation will be adjusted following the liturgical calendar (during the Christmas period they will receive chocolate Christmas figurines).
