Happy New Year

From Friday 24th December till Saturday 1st January the Museum is closed. This offers a perfect occasion to look back at the last few months. And to be honest, once again in 2010 you showed up in great numbers.

On Thursday 23th December the visitors counter stopped at 29054. The larger part, 17156 persons to be precise, took a guided tour, the others explored the fifteen rooms on their own.

You were also very eager participants of the third edition of the Brussels’ Museum Night Fever, the Erfgoeddag, the Printemps des Musées, the Krokuskriebels, Place aux Enfants, the Open Monument Days and the two autumnal late evening openings.

The website of the Museum was updated with quite a lot of news items and interesting topics, such as “Object of the month” – you can download the whole series from Object of th month – and the catalogue of the Commodity Money collection, the first part of the museum’s collection to be digitalised.

The museum team wishes you a merry Christmas and the very best for 2011!
