A memorable autumn evening at the museum  Share

This autumn, more than 70 museums will join the Brussels Museums late night openings (“nocturnes”), the NBB Museum again ranking among them. On Thursday 22 November, it will keep its doors open until the exceptional time of 10.00 pm and its nocturne offers a wide range of experiences for young and old alike.

Nocturnes_Poster_A2[1]MUSEA-page-001If you’ve never visited the museum, this is an excellent opportunity to walk in and take a good look around, as our new permanent exhibition as well as the building itself are sure to please.

You can also join one of the themed guided tours that we’ll be running continuously, on which our guides will tell you everything you always wanted to know about money in the First World War.

Or perhaps ‘fake’ is more your thing? Why not take the Fake Tour for an interactive walk on the tightrope between real and counterfeit? We can’t reveal more, but one thing’s for sure: those staying at home will be wrong-footed.

Of course, there’s nothing stopping you from signing up for both guided tours, each of which lasts 30 minutes.

Music lovers also have something to look forward to, as the Moonlighters make their debut at two points during this autumn evening: 6.45 and 8.45 pm. You may think you don’t know this ensemble of young musicians, but you might be in for a surprise.

And then there’s the Museum Mocktail to quench your thirst with mint and golden sparkle…as befits a money museum.

You’ll find all info about this memorable museum night here. And don’t forget to secure your place on the guided tours: though they’re absolutely free, it’s first come, first served!
