How does it work?

  • All advantages included in the Brussels Card are valid during 24, 48 or 72 hours.
  • Your Brussels Cards allows you unlimited free access to all included museums during 24, 48 or 72 hours from the first validation (the first time your card is scanned in one of the museums). Simply present your Brussels Card at the ticket desk and it will be electronically validated by scanning the unique barcode on the card. Please note that on Mondays most of the big museums are closed.
  • The public transport ticket or the Hop on Hop off ticket is valid for 24, 48 or 72 hours from its first use in a bus / tram / metro or its first use in a Hop on Hop off bus. Your first use of the card doesn’t need to correspond to your first museum visit. This means you can activate your travel pass for example the day after you visit your first museum. Please note: to use public transport, you must pick up first your EventPass.
  • If you want to use the discounts included in your Brussels Card, simply hand over the corresponding discount voucher to the restaurant, shop, partner staff. You will find the discount vouchers at the back of the information guide or in the email confirmation in case you bought the card online. The discounts are for single use only. The discounts remain valid, even after your Brussels Card has expired.
  • You must use your Brussels Card for the first time within a year of its purchase date. When using your card in the next calendar year, you should take into account that the list of museums and discounts might have changed! The list of museums and discounts is updated every 1st of February.
  • If you buy your card online, you’ll receive an automatically generated email confirming your purchase. This confirmation email contains a link so that you can print off your Brussels Card directly. Do look after this voucher: it allows you to use your Brussels Card immediately (the voucher doesn’t actually have to be exchanged!). The email also contains a second link that enables you to print off discount vouchers that are valid for sightseeing attractions, restaurants, shops etc. If you’d like to receive the Brussels Card’s free guide as well, just pick one up in a Visit Brussels information office or download it here for free.
