Museums & exhibitions

ADAM - Art&Design Atomium Museum

ADAM is the only museum in Brussels dedicated to design from the XXth century until today.

The permanent exhibition Plasticarium shows the impact of plastics on creation in art and design from the fifties to today; the temporary exhibitions explore the design world through other themes, materials, techniques and times.
Only 150 m from the symbol of Brussels, the ADAM also offers combined tickets with the Atomium.

Atomium

The Atomium is not only a monument and architectural unicum, but also an exhibition space with a permanent and with temporary exhibitions.
While the permanent exhibition is dedicated to the Expo58 which lead to the building of the Atomium, the temporary exhibitions often treat design and history topics related to this time, such as an exhibition about the legendary Belgian flight company Sabena.

Street light museum

This is a very special museum.

No entrance, no fee – just in the open air of the Rue Delva 75.

Look up and you will see the evolution of Brussels’ street lights in about 20 features.

It is worthwhile to visit when your are in neighbourhood to visit the Atomium or Adam Museum.

Plan your vist around the falling of the night so that you can see the lights on.

Stop by the very typical bar La Perle for a coffee or a beer to feel the local atmosphere.

You can also view them on Phozagora.
