Design Museum Brussels


Initiated by the Atomium’s acquisition of a private collection, the Design Museum Brussels, nestled in the Heysel Plateau, is a place dedicated to 20th century design and its history. Favoring a historical approach and echoing current and future research, the museum aims to make design accessible and understandable to all audiences. Much more than formal, aesthetic, and functional objects, design bears witness to the economic, social, ideological, and cultural conditions of the time. A place for encounters, discoveries and sharing, the Design Museum Brussels promotes the multidimensionality of design through its collections, exhibitions, and mediation activities.

This ticket gives access to the museum’s permanent and temporary exhibitions. More info:
