We support, connect, open and promote museums and art centres through numerous initiatives such as Museum Night Fever, the Nocturnes, the Brussels Card, the Art Nouveau Pass, the brus​selsmu​se​ums​.be portalsite and the Open Museum programme, which works sustainably to create more inclusive spaces.

How we work

The General Assembly, in which each museum holds a voice, establishes every year the list of priority projects. The Administrative Committee makes sure that they are successfully completed. A permanent committee makes sure the projects are concretely achieved.

Brussels Museums is supported by the Brussels-Capital Region, the two community commissions (French and Flemish), the Flemish Community, the French Community, the City of Brussels, the National Bank of Belgium and by its members.
