Brussels "Museum Night Fever" kicks off its 15th edition tonight

Brussels celebrates this Saturday 22 October "Museum Night Fever" 15th edition. ​
This year, 34 museums will open their doors to the general public ​
between 7 PM and 1 AM. 

With more than thirty museums registered for the event, this 2022 edition is the largest ever. For the occasion, the organizers have decided to put artists from the LGBTQIA+ communities in the spotlight. Besides, as every year, events and artistic performances will mark the visitors throughout the evening. 

For the occasion, the public transport operator Stib will charter several shuttles, including historic vehicles. The shuttles aim to transport festival-goers to the museums.

Stib has planned four different routes, all departing from Place Royale. One of these circuits will be provided by historic vehicles made available by the Tram Museum, dependent on the STIB. Buses from the Noctis network will also run from midnight to 3 AM from Central Station, so visitors can join the after-party to be held at C12 from midnight.

Among the museums, there are a few regulars such as ARGOS, Autoworld Brussels, CINEMATEK, the GardeRobe MannekenPis, the Halles Saint-Géry, the Museum of the City of Brussels and the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences. 

Some institutions are coming back to the festival, such as Train World and the Kanal-Centre Pompidou, which will present the exhibition "Kinshasa N'Tonga, between future and dust". 

The Thalie Foundation, the Iselp (Higher Institute for the Study of Plastic Language) and the Lodge will take part in "Museum Night Fever" for the first time.

The standard ticket costs € 18 and can be purchased at The entrance is free of charge for children up to 12 years old (no festival bracelet required) and visitors included in Article 27. Museum pass holders get a € 9 discount buying the tickets at BELvue Museum, Boghossian Foundation, Comics Art Museum, MIMA & WIELS.
