If you enjoy visiting museums, then purchasing a Brussels Card is a must! They are available in 24/48/72 passes. I chose the 48 hour one, and included a 48 hour travel pass, which gives unlimited travel on all buses, trams and Metro. The Pass gives...More

This is a must for kids and parents, amazing structure, cool views. Slightly hard to find, poor Brussels signage. Displays inside are dated, but perhaps quaint. But the structure, the views are what you want to see.

If you're around the atomium and you're interested in getting to know more about the universe you should consider going. The entrance is about 7€ and you're basically just getting a movie for it. There are some other things as well some quizzes and interactive...More

If you live in Belgium and in the weekend you have a free time is nice to see this place. Ticket for one person is 7€ - one movie. Exposition is not so big. Also good idea to go there with kids
