There’s no need to book – just turn up at the museum information desk on the ground floor.

Departure point: Lobby of the House of European History, Parc Léopold, Rue Belliard 135, 1000 Brussels.

Workshop:
Do you know what connection the House of European History building has with photography? Did you take a look at the sculpture in the middle of the exhibitions? What colour is your history? Do you enjoy writing? Then visit our Fables Room and add to the appeal of the museum by making yourself part of it. Creation with KNEPH

The workshop will run non-stop between 10.00 and 17.00 on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 September. No reservation necessary.

Where: Fables Room and reception area at the House of European History, Parc Léopold, Rue Belliard 135, 1000 Brussels.
