This is Belgium

Everyone knows what is typically Belgian. Or do they? Visit the BELvue to gain a better understanding of today's Belgium in a contemporary and original way. Discover the country's history through seven themes in seven rooms: democracy, prosperity, solidarity, pluralism, migration, language and Europe. Look at news clips, posters, charts or graphs and listen to contemporary testimonies. Or feel an object and guess what it is.


From View-Masters to trendy shoes

Be sure to take a look at the gallery, with over 200 objects depicting the material memory of Belgium. Are you a lover of coffee filters, the electric fryer, or Val Saint-Lambert crystal vases? Or do you prefer vases from Van Beirendonck, Delvaux or Van Severen? Football fanatics are also in for a treat with a ball signed by the Red Devils. It’s a collection with a high Belgium content!
