You received a voucher by email, which you had to exchange for the actual Brussel Card at the tourist information office in Brussels. Since we took the train to Brussels, the tourist information was only a 4-minute walk from the train station (Grand Place) and the exchange was quick and easy. The use of the card in the museums worked perfectly and without problems. Only in the Hard Rock Café was receiving the free ice cream tied to the purchase of a menu. Since you weren't allowed to eat anything in the Hard Rock Café at the time and only the shop was practically open, the voucher for the café was actually pointless. I was able to use the Brussel Card in all the museums that I have visited with my son. After just 3 museums, buying the card was worth it. I would do it again at any time and can only recommend it. You actually save a lot of money.
I got the 72 hour pass and it was excellent value for money. I went to 3+ museums each day so really made a saving. The only improvement that could be made is with regards to collecting the public transport pass. The "Go" ticket machines are located at bus stops and this isn't mentioned. It took me about an hour to work this out as I was only told to got to Gare Centrale station and so I naturally tried the ticket machines in there. The easy solution is to have a "Go" machine in the office where you collect the museum pass itself so then is a genuine one stop shop.
Very functional, fast and economical pass! I recommend validating it in the middle of the afternoon ... it saves a little extra day !! However, in this period of "Covid", be careful to make a prior reservation to visit museums and other sites ... it is often requested.
The activation of the service was simple and intuitive, the paper material provided on site was useful and easy to consult. The pass for public transport should be considered as an alternative to day tickets. The conventions and discounts could be extended.
A great plan Do not miss the visit to the Town Hall (only on Wednesdays) it is really very interesting. Our guide was just awesome
