Museums with children in mind

Let's continue our programme for the second part "Our children in the big museum of Brussels" and let's go to  ...


1. Le Wiels :

Le Wiels is not considered as a big museum but more like an international laboratory in the creation and diffusion of contemporary art. It is organised in the form of an ASBL whose function is its presentation, production and education.  It is a dynamic museum, original in its project to heighten the awareness and to gather people together.   We absolutely "adoooore" Le Wiels and it is different from the others:
