The Children’s Museum, Brussels


The Children’s Museum in Brussels, Belgium has absolutely loads of interactive exhibits to help kids learn about themselves and others! They’ve got super cool topics like imagination, communication, self-confidence and the five senses, and these are explored through play. We think this is an amazing idea! For example, “1001 Landmarks” teaches kids how to find their way around and promotes self-growth, while “The Family Super Market” highlights family values. They can even learn to cook, build wooden structures, produce a television programme or be a superhero for the day. Now this sounds like a place to visit.

This museum is often touted as one of the best of its kind in the world.

They can explore the greenhouse and gardens to learn about natural sciences, watch animated T-Rex and Velociraptors in action, view small reptiles in a mini zoo, create their own whistling wheel, learn about food preservation by canning their own goods or perform experiments with light to see how it moves. There is certainly a lot here.

There is certainly something for everyone here! If you’ve got a superhero fan they can grab a cape and head to the Super Powers School at the comic book exhibition. If you’ve got a Sesame Street fan they can take a seat on the famous 123 stoop. And yes parents there’s something here for you too, take a trip down memory lane in the Toy Hall and Fame. Oh but that’s still not all, there’s a huge coral reef and aquarium and a rainforest garden with over 1,000 butterflies.

Science Center NEMO, Amsterdam


There are over five floors of interactive exhibits, simulations and experiments that answer questions like “What will I look like in 30 years?” and “How does lightening work?” Kids use their sense of smelling, hearing, feeling and seeing to learn how the world works. One exhibit is ‘The Search For Life’ where kids can discover extra-terrestrial beings, how life began and the difference between living and lifeless objects. There’s also Space Shower, where children can view mysterious rays from space.  This sure has great kid appeal.
