What is there to do with the kids in Brussels this winter?

Brussels also has a whole lot to offer you and your children in the winter months. Are you ready for some exciting adventures with the whole family? We share with you our top tips for family outings!

Brussels’ museums have pulled out all the stops this winter and are putting on some stunning exhibitions!  Discover the lives of apes in the Museum of Natural Sciences, American dream cars in Autoworld and dainty doll’s houses at Little Life in the Halle gate. The Museum of Ixelles has an art exhibition that’s been created especially for children: HOP! They can dream of faraway lands at the Oceania exhibition in the Cinquantenaire Museum and in the MIMA they’ll discover Art is Comic, an exhibition all about the art of the comic strip.

The Coudenberg Museum, the Brussels Aquarium, the Planetarium, the BELvue Museum and experience.brussels have got your family activities covered and even Mini Europe is staying open until 7 January!

  • During the holidays

  • During the school holidays you can enjoy Winter Wonders, with its ice-skating rink and big wheel, Christmas tree and live nativity scene, enchanting carousels and a whole host of delicious treats: crispy chips, light waffles and tasty hot chocolate.

    At Océade you can even take the whole family for a swim in the snow!

  • Would you rather stay in, out of the cold?

  • Fancy staying in the warm for a while and taking in a show?

    Treat yourself and the children to some of your favourite Disney music, performed by an orchestra of some 80 musicians and 4 top soloists!

    La Montagne Magique and the Noël au Théâtre festival (both in French) offer a wide programme of shows and Flagey, Wolubilis, Bronks (the Dutch-speaking theatre), Le Wolf and many other cultural centres have put together a spectacular programme!

    Would you rather watch a film? Jonge Film Fans have a varied winter programme. There’s also Anima, the festival for fans of animated film of all ages, and the Comic Con Festival for big kids!
