At the BELvue Museum, visitors discover the major historical periods of our country by means of numerous historical documents. Three reading levels enable you to pass from the general context to the evocation of the most remarkable facts, via a number of starting points to better understand today's Belgium, such as the fight for universal suffrage, the world wars, and the "The Question Royale", the golden sixties or the recent state reforms.
The different exhibition rooms form one continuous trail and also show the reign of each king through a series of works and portraits which characterize the sovereigns' personalities and the royal family's image with the general public.

Closed: 1 January and 25 December.
Closes at 2pm on 24 and 31 December.

Groups: option of non-guided tours, guided tours or combined bike tours by reservation.
