Design Museum Brussels

Information

  • The Design Museum Brussels, established after the acquisition of a private collection by the Atomium, is a place dedicated to design and its history. Since 2015, the museum's collection, The Plastic Design Collection, circumscribes the landscape of plastics in design from the 1950s to the present day. Alongside this collection the museum opened Belgisch Design Belge, a new permanent exhibition space dedicated to Belgian design and its history.

Enriched by a programme of temporary exhibitions, the Design Museum Brussels also explores other fields of design creation and its impact on society and our daily lives.

Through exhibitions, guided tours, workshops, conferences and events, the museum aims to ensure that design is intelligible to one and all.

Wearing a mask is not compulsory, but is strongly recommended inside the museum.

INFO : Free entrance on the first Sunday of the month only for the permanent exhibitions (the Plastic Design Collection and belgisch design belge) - Entrance tickets can only be obtained on site.
