Museums and cultural institutions come to you
Cooking workshop (In French and Dutch)
Eating local and seasonal produce is good for your health and it's good for the environment! So why not try out some new recipes as a family? That’s exactly what Bruxelles-Environnement is trying to promote with its original recipes that use local, seasonal produce.
Brussels’ museums move into your living room!
Discover the story of the majestic humpback whale hanging in the museum's entrance hall and then head to the Dinosaur Gallery to marvel at its Iguanodons thanks to the Museum of Natural Sciences’ app. You and your little ones will learn everything there is to know about 6 of the museum’s rare specimens.
The Horta Museum launched Hort@home! The aim is to bring a little bit of the museum to your home. The museum will also offer "hort@home for kids" every other Monday at 14:00 and will publish a video tutorial for children on its Facebook page, which can be completed at home with very little material.
