Observation-led exercises

The museum presents collections in all fields of natural sciences, drawn from all the continents and oceans. Whether your goal is a holistic discovery of our exhibits or a specific theme, having your group accompanied by a specialist will give your visit real added value. Designed as observation-led exercises, our guided tours illustrate scientific methods in a simple way: based on the specimens on display, the visitors gather information, interpret it and draw conclusions. The guide tailors the session, useing language appropriate to his/her audience and interacting with the group to enhance the visit.

Science is something you just have to experience!

In our workshops, you will explore the versatility of the animal world, or what the building blocks of the Earth are, what life used to be like or the origins of mankind, and more importantly, how we have obtained all that information. Try it for yourself by observing and asking questions, and then trying to work things out in a creative, fun and educational way. Experience it and find out for yourself!

The workshops are given in Dutch and/or in French.  See also for themes below.
