Take advantage of the good weather to visit these gardens!

Investigation at the Museum
At the National Bank of Belgium Museum, a treasure hunt is organised during the Easter holidays for the little ones (4-6 years old) in an easy version and for the older ones in a slightly more complicated version (7-12 years old). It is free and takes place in the museum itself. However, you have to book by e-mail or telephone. Please note that the museum is closed from 1 to 5 April.
