Children’s Museum

The Children’s Museum is a great place for kids with workshops and so many things to learn and have fun with. There is also an outdoor playground at the park Jadot, where the museum is situated

There are many different things for kids to experience and to play with

The biggest hit for us are the workshops. You need to enroll the kids at the spot for the two workshops of your choice. Not every person from the staff speaks English, so it might be a good idea to verify with the person doing the workshop first, if your kid does not speak English

There was a workshop where the kids baked cupcakes

There was also a DIY workshop. This was the best thing ever – for adults as well!!

There is a café with snacks and drinks. There are tables to sit and enjoy your coffee while the kids play

The museum is mainly indoors. There is a very small outdoor area with just a pond and an insect hotel

The Jadot park, where the museum is situated, is accessible to the public. There is also an outdoor playground there

The signs are only in French and Dutch. Some of the staff that do the workshops speak English, but not all do. You need about 2-3 hours there with the outdoor playground, so it’s a good idea to go at the opening time to have enough time for everything

The museum organizes also stages during school holidays and birthday parties. You can find more details here:

Opening hours: Wednesday and weekend 14.30-17.30
During school holidays it is open every day

Cost: EUR 9 per person (kids 0-3 years old enter for free). There are reduced prices for groups, for pregnants and for Ixelles residents. You can book your tickets here:

This is NOT a stroller friendly, wheelchair friendly activity. There are stairs and no elevator. The museum does not accept strollers, so it’s best to get your baby carrier

There is no parking either, you will have to park in the streets nearby. Remember to leave the blue disc on the car

Dogs are not allowed

There are toilets at the museum

About 12 minutes drive from Schuman, Brussels (or 25 minutes by public transport)
