The second to last Thursday of the Brussels Museums Nocturnes is already here: seize the opportunity to visit some of Brussels’ incredible museums at night and discover something new about the city and its mysteries!
Today, seven museums will open their doors to the visitors and will display their wonders. They are: the Tram Museum, the Wittockiana library, Villa Empain, Solbosch’s Salle Allende, l’Experimentarium de Chimie et Physique, and the Museum of Medicinal Herbs and Pharmacy.
Tonight, the @trammuseumbrussels will turn off all the lights of the museum and switch the light on all the trams.💡You can also book a trip around the city aboard a Belle Epoque tram-bar. Not bad. #brusselsmuseums #nocturnes17 #trammuseum #tramway #brussels #woluwesaintpierre © 📷 2016, @trammuseumbrussels
The Tram Museum will offer an unusual proposal: you will not just be able to see the different -working!- models that were adopted during time, but you will also have the possibility to hop on a 1935 tram and go around the city. Once back at the museum, check out the bar and the drinks!
La Wittockiana will present an exhibition focused on Indonesian comic strips, describing its history and development, his characters and heroes and its contemporary application, to underline the theme of this year’s Europalia.
The architectural masterpiece of Brussels’ art deco, Villa Empain, will host tonight the exhibition Ways of Seeing, the new expo of the Boghossian Foundation.
The ULB will host the other four events of the night: the Allende room will host the exhibition on syphilis, la Plaine will host the Experimentarium of chemistry and physics, with workshops and activities and, lastly, the Museum of Medicinal Herbs and Pharmacy will introduce the visitors to the mesmerizing world of plants and medicine.
