Random tips on things to do and places to go in Brussels and beyond

Thursday evening museums 25/10

1 Comment

The line-up of museums for this coming Thursday’s Nocturnes (click here to find out more about what the Nocturnes are) is probably one of the best of the season so far. If you start early, you might even be able to visit 2-3 museums in a single evening. These are my picks (also realistic because of distance):

  • Museum of Musical Instruments – featuring a Monteverdi concert this Thursday
  • Coudenberg archeological site – ruins of the old palace, under the Place Royale
  • Belvue museum – learn a bit more about Belgian history (the Coudenberg and Belvue actually offer a combined ticket for both venues).

If you still have time, I highly recommend the behind-the-scenes tour of the opera house, La Monnaie / De Munt. If you enjoy opera or theater, you will find this guided visit quite entertaining, as you will see the make-up and design studios, the wardrobes, etc.

Guided visits for all these museums, however, are only in French and Dutch.
