What's it all about?

You’ve visited the Museum; now get to know the scientific institution behind it! Starting with the stairs and corridors that are normally off-limits for visitors, you’ll discover the building’s amazing architecture. Then you'll see a scientist’s office and you’ll visit the depositories and their impressive collections. You’ll see that the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences is jam-packed with surprising specimens.

The visit’s route includes a lot of stairs and narrow passages and so unfortunately is unsuitable for visitors with reduced mobility.

Available in English, in Dutch or in French.
