A unique opportunity to wander around the rooms, corridors and monumental staircases, as well as contemplating the invaluable collections of art works and decorations, from all continents and eras.
Main exhibitions in 2014
In the year commemorating the First World War, discover the exhibition titled "Albert and Elisabeth: the film of the life of a royal couple."
From a selection of filmed documentaries, some unseen, showing the life of two Sovereigns over a twenty-five year period.
There, you will discover a modern couple that enjoy contact with the population. Thanks to technical progress, this image offers a new way of really comprehending the role of a Sovereign.
The First World War was a turning point, as were King Albert and Queen Elisabeth's royal tours and visits by foreign head of states. Not forgetting the more intimate moments.
This is a unique opportunity to admire less known collections of the federal heritage.

Staying true to the tradition, Technopolis® will also play a part in the exhibition.
In fact, "De brillants esprits belges" (Bright Belgian spirits), the interactive exhibition, recounts the journey of some leading Belgian scientists, in addition to the essential role played by King Albert I in promoting scientific research.
You will also discover the work of ten influential Belgian scientists, in a unique and surprising way.
