More than 45,000 museumPASSES have been sold since the launch of the pass back in September, reported the creator of this cultural project, museumPASS.
The pass allows holders the possibility to visit more than 120 museums (without any limit) for a year, in Flanders, as well as in Wallonia and Brussels. All for a price of 50 euros.
“The goal for 2018 was to sell 30,000 passes. The number of passes sold exceeds all of our expectations and proves that the Belgians eagerly awaited such a formula,” reported Julie Van der heyden, the director of museumPASS, who hopes to reach 100,000 sales in 2019.
