Brussels Card, the all-in-one Brussels museum pass, is now on offer again with a formula including a public transports option.
On top of granting free access to 39 museums, giving discounts upon showing the card in 30 shops, attractions and guided tours, holders of this card may unlimitedly use buses, trams and tubes of the STIB network, including to and from the airport. And there’s an extra bonus: you save the € 5 issuing a MOBIB card (the usual necessary support for 24, 48 or 72 hours tickets) usually costs. It’s easier and better value!
Brussels Card: flexible options
The Brussels Card grants free entrance to 39 Brussels museums for 24, 48 or 72 hours. In that list, you can find must-sees such as the Magritte Museum, the Belgian Comic Strip Centre, the Museum of Natural Sciences, the Museum of Music Instruments, the Cinquantenaire Museum, Brussels City Museum, Autoworld, BELvue Museum etc. The Brussels Card also entitles you to access temporary exhibitions in BOZAR, the Wiels, the Botanique, the Centrale for Contemporary Art and the new MIMA. Lastly, it also gives interesting discounts on certain attractions (such as the Atomium, Mini-Europe and Océade) and guided tours, shops and famous places throughout the capital.
The basic card can be completed with unlimited access to the ‘hop on hop off’ tourist buses or with the entire STIB network of buses, trams and tubes.
Brussels Card: ‘more visits, pay less’
Not only does the Brussels Card aims at making your visiting Brussels easier but it also allows you to save on the fares to museums and attractions. Here’s a quick simulation: a couple decides to spend 48 hours in Brussels, wishing to use public transports and to visit the Magritte Museum, the Belgian Comic Strip Centre, the Museum of Music Instruments, an exhibition in BOZAR (Picasso at the moment) as well as the Atomium. Without the Brussels Card, they would pay € 75 per person. With the Brussels Card, they will only pay € 55 (€ 46 for the Brussels Card itself + € 9 reduced fare at the Atomium), i.e. saving € 20 per person!
