The Royal Palace is opening its doors

As it does every year, the Royal Palace in Brussels will be opening its doors to the general public this summer with an exhibition on the theme of “Wetenschap en cultuur op het Koninklijk Paleis”/“Science et culture au Palais royal” [Science and culture at the Royal Palace]. At the “Hemel!”/“Ciel!” [Sky!] exhibition from 22 July through 6 September 2017, spectators will have the chance to rediscover the skies based on a number of different scientists’ fields of study.

True to tradition, Technopolis, the Flemish hands-on centre for science and technology, will be present. This year it is presenting the interactive exhibition “Op je gezondheid!”/“À votre santé” [Here’s to your health!] to help people get better acquainted with the human body.

Finally, the Royal Association of Dynasty and Cultural Heritage is organising the “Karel van Vlaanderen, Prins, Regent, Kunstenaar”/“Karel van Vlaanderen, Prince, Régent, Artiste” [Karel van Vlaanderen, Prince, Regent, Artist] exhibition with funding from the King Baudouin Foundation.

The exhibition is the result of a partnership between the Royal Palace, the FPS Chancery of the Prime Minister and the Belgian Federal Science Policy Office.

Where: Royal Palace of Brussels, Paleizenplein/Place des Palais. Free admission.

When: From 22 July through 6 September 2017, from 10.30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (last admission at 3:45 p.m.). Closed on Mondays.
