More information about public transport in Brussels

By car :

Driving through and finding a parking space in the city centre can be difficult due to traffic.

If, however, you wish to park your car closer to the museum, we recommend that you use the Congrès-Albertine underground car park (paying).

For disabled visitors, two specially designated parking places can be found in front of the museum entrance.

By bicycle :

In 2009, the Brussels-Capital Region inaugurated a system of shared bicycles across its territory. With bike station No. 20 located just beside the museum, it's always easy to take or leave your bicycle!
