Nocturnes: Brussels museums now open at night every Thursday

Nocturnes is co-organised by Brussels municipalities so you can combine visits to several places on the same night and guided walks will also be offered between the museums.

"During the Nocturnes, you’ll get the opportunity to discover the exhibitions and collections of 37 exceptional places in the capital through guided tours, artistic workshops and backstage visits," organisers said.

This edition will also be organised under the new initiative of the Brussels-Capital Region, which has put Art Nouveau into the spotlight for 2023. Each week, a visit to an Art Nouveau house or an exhibition will be organised.

On the programme, visitors will be able to discover new cuisines in the Paul Moens medicinal plant garden, admire the huge collection of earthenware clocks in the Clockarium or to attend a reading of erotic poems at the MEM. Some events will also be an opportunity to immerse oneself in the daily life of the artists, by listening to a musical setting of the poet’s works at the Maurice Carême Museum, or by making a basket at the FelixArt museum.

After six evenings and the participation of 37 institutions, the Nocturnes will close on 18 May, International Museum Day.

For a single price of €5 per entry or €2.5 for under-26s, visitors will be able to enjoy a wide variety of guided tours, exhibitions, art workshops, or private access to certain reserves.
