Videos, chocolate, fun for kids, toys and contemporary art will be at the menu for tonight’s Brussels Museums Nocturnes.
We are entering into the last month of the Brussels Museums Nocturnes. From 14 September to 7 December, this cultural event has been providing you with the opportunity to visit 5 museums every single Thursday, from 5.00pm to 10.00pm, with very affordable prices (free/€1.5/€3); which makes culture accessible to everyone. There are only 5 dates left now and this is why you should consider popping down at one of the museums on the list tonight.
What’s on the menu tonight?
Argos – If you are a fan of videos and films, or if you aim to become one a day a film director, Argos could be a good plan. This museum was set up in 1989 and hosts exhibitions dedicated to films and videos. Argos has also collected an impressive number of archives with about 5000 films from the 1960s until today. Several activities will be offered during that night, as well as you can have a snack and drinks with the teams.
Children’s museum. Who said children and museums were not compatible? The Childrens’ museum hosts games and decoration to allow the children to discover the World and to deepen their knowledge on themselves. Educators are there to make this visit as effective and beneficial as possible. You will also be provided with the opportunity to have a look at the “Time to wonder” exhibition.
The Children Museum in Ixelles often leaves small ones fascinated + it's a great excuse to visit the Jadot Mansion. This Thursday night, bring the kids to the #nocturnes17 & let them in charge at the 'Time to Wonder' exhibition (suited to 5-12 years old children). #brusselsmuseums #childrenmuseum #ixelles #elsene #brussels
Toy Museum. After visiting the Children’s museum, why wouldn’t you go to the Toy Museum? You can discover or rediscover the world of toys and puppets there, as well as have an interesting chat with the curators. A show of mechanical toys and puppets will be performed. Later on, the Toy Museum will host a concert of classical music, from 7.00pm to 9.00 pm.
Choco-story Brussels. This museum gives the floor to one of the most important jewels of the Belgian and Brusselian culture: chocolate. Choco-story has decided to innovate during the Nocturnes and suggests mixing taste and music. ‘The Sound of Flavour’ invites you to taste chocolates while listening to music, which will make you aware of the interactions of the different sense.
CENTRALE. A more abstract suggestion for tonight. CENTRALE will indeed give you the opportunity to discover 11 collectors and 11 universes with more than 100 contemporary art works. Tonight guides will stand available to welcome you for free.
