How much does the Nocturnes cost? 

A single admission to one of the museums each Thursday evening costs 5€ (standard) or 2,5€ (-26 years old). Admission is free for children under 13 (no reservation necessary) except for the Children’s Museum and Foundation A, which have a program tailored to them.

Some museums are also free for all this year. See the complete program for more information.

Are the Nocturnes accessible with the museumPASS museums, Brussels Card or teachers card? 

No, due to the exceptional nature of the event, the museumPASSmusées, Brussels Card or Prof card are not valid.

Do I have to book my visits? 

For most museums, reservations are required for activities organized with a specific time slot (guides, behind the scenes, workshops, extra-muros). For standard exhibition visits, reservations are recommended, but you can also buy your ticket on the evening of the Nocturne, at the museum entrance.

See the complete program for all the info.

This is the ticket that entitles you to a visit to the exhibition(s) during the evening, between 5:00 pm and 10:00 pm, with the last access to the museum generally at 9:00 pm.

When do the Nocturnes take place? 

Every Thursday evening from 5 to 10 pm from April 21 to June 9 in a series of different museums (usually located in the same district of Brussels).
