experience.brussels free expo

This is not a museum... it’s the most original free exhibition about Brussels and its inhabitants!

Whether you're just passing through or you've been living here for years: this exhibition will teach you all about this astonishing and vibrant city! Here, great efforts are made to present everything you ever wanted to know in a surprising, amusing and captivating way: a giant model gives you a fascinating insight into the region, locals tell you about their Brussels, take part in an interactive quiz, ... experience.brussels may be an informative exhibition, but it is anything but boring or pretentious. In which neighbourhood can I find particular places? What are the area's unmissable specialities? How does it feel to live or work in Brussels? Not only will you leave with the answers to your questions, but also with a head full of fresh ideas, a few words of Brussels dialect and even a personalised postcard!
