  • Brussels Atomium Admission Ticket

    1. Brussels Atomium Admission Ticket

    The Atomium symbolizes an iron crystal, magnified 165 billion times, referring to the power of nuclear energy that in 1958 was intended for peaceful use. Today it carries on the debate of 1958: What kind of future do we want for tomorrow? It was not intended that the Atomium survive beyond the 1958 World Fair but its popularity soon made it a key landmark, first in Brussels, and then internationally. It has become one of the icons of Brussels, and since its inspired restoration in 2006, it is referred to as the most Belgian of monuments. The panorama alone is worth a trip to the Atomium. Thanks to its location on a naturally elevated plateau on the outskirts of town, the Atomium offers the only true 360-degree panoramic view of the 19 municipalities of Brussels. Themes such as Science, Progress, and the Future, still as relevant today as they were a half century ago, are covered by a ...

    The Atomium was an amazing experience! Great view of the city, and the staff is also really great. They speak French, English, and Dutch, so anyone can go there and feel comfortable with the service.

    This was a very fun activity to do with a group. Do not be late, we were because of the line outside and they started without us. We made up for it with making chocolate button blobs but we did have time to make chocolate bars and suckers. It was good high quality chocolate, milk and dark. The self guided tour after was nice but was a bit long. Make sure you get in line extra early for this. Very fun activity for a group to do!

    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.

What people are saying about Brussels

You walk alone through the museum with an audio guide, so you set the pace yourself. The subject of chocolate is dealt with very comprehensively and I find it very exciting. Unfortunately, due to Corona, there were no samples, but at the end there was a shop to buy chocolate.

The Atomium was an amazing experience! Great view of the city, and the staff is also really great. They speak French, English, and Dutch, so anyone can go there and feel comfortable with the service.

Great experience. We had lunch there and the view was spectacular. Food was delicious and customer was top notch.

Very fun activity. With a teenager it was a good moment of bonding. Very nice host.

The hour long chocolate workshop is fun for adults and kids
