“Museum Night Fever” a great success

Around 12,000 people visited Brussels’ museums on Saturday evening during the third edition of “Museum Night Fever” This is up 2,000 on last year. Twenty of the capital’s museums opened their doors between 7pm and 1am.

In addition, special performances and concerts were held at various locations.

The idea behind this was to attract more young people to the museums.

The Brussels Centre for Fine Arts, the Belvue Museum at the Royal Palace and the Belgian Centre for Comic Art were especially popular.

The Brussels public transport company MIVB laid on a complimentary bus service to ferry people between the various museums.

Tickets bought in advance cost just 8 Euros, while tickets bought on the night cost 12 Euros.
