National Bank of Belgium’s Museum to host two exceptional events

The next two Saturdays, 16 and 23 October, the Museum of the National Bank of Belgium will be exceptionally opening its doors to the public. An ideal opportunity for visitors to discover our collections in the stately building nestled in the heart of the capital city.

In an exclusive opening on 16 October, visitors will have a chance to browse around the Museum’s permanent exhibition free of charge, to see its wide variety of collections of objects and documents never seen anywhere else before. They will also be able to get to know more about the role of the central bank and everything to do with money and the world of finance, thanks to interactive and audiovisual media. There will also be entertainment for children and adolescents.

But that’s not all! On Saturday 23 October, the Museum will once again be taking part in the Museum Night Fever event! No fewer than 29 Brussels museums will be opening their doors to night owls from 7pm to 1 am and, on this occasion, the Museum will have an amazing programme on offer!
