  • They only do the screening for the film (aka the main attraction of it) TWICE A DAY. At 12 and 3. This is not made obvious enough. The screening is only 30 mins anyway, so why they can't play it more ...  more »
  • If you're around the atomium and you're interested in getting to know more about the universe you should consider going. The entrance is about 7€ and you're basically just getting a movie for it. Ther...  more »
  • If you live in Belgium and in the weekend you have a free time is nice to see this place. Ticket for one person is 7€ - one movie. Exposition is not so big. Also good idea to go there with kids  more »

  • Good place to take kids on rainy weekends. The staff is friendly and the shows are ok but the quality of the image is not great - Do not expect and IMAX experience. The exhibition area would be good if half of the "interactive" elements were not broken. Price is reasonable (7 EUR per adult) so I guess you cannot expect too much.
  • Great place for kids and family. The 180 degree theatre is awesome
  • Quite disappointing: most of the interactive exhibition stations were out of order or didn't work properly, the multimedia-elements consisted of static web pages with some rather poor pictures and there was really very little you can do at all... but watch the half hour movie which was okay but nothing that would make the trip worthwhile. Can't recommend it.
  • i walked here from the tram station but it wasnt open yet at 930 so I just proceed to the Atomium. There is a futsal park in front the planetarium as i remembered
  • The actual exhibition is small but the show was pretty cool

Where to stay in Brussels

It's easy to find accommodations in Brussels for nearly any budget. Tourists generally gravitate to the area surrounding Grand-Place, the city's main square. Also consider staying near Stephanie Square Centre and Boulevard de Waterloo, which are both centrally located. As Europe's unofficial capital, the city boasts a wealth of high-end hotels for visiting diplomats, concentrated along glitzy Avenue Louise. Those looking for a low-budget option will find a host of hostels scattered around the Grand-Place and within walking distance to the city's main attractions.
