Dance, with Freestyle Lab
Dancers from the Belgian collective Freestyle Lab will come to the museum to delight fans of hip hop, popping, house dance and breaking with a string of performances and cyphers that will really ignite the atmosphere. Whether you're a seasoned or inexperienced dancer, it's time to show what you can do!

Object theatre, with Susanoo Coollectif
Drawing inspiration from the themes covered by the museum, Susanoo Coollectif will tell the story of how our country came into being, of a culinary encounter between Italy and Belgium, how two dictionaries combine to form a common language, and many tales about the Manneken Pis. The objects speak to us with poetry, humour, and also truth.
- At 19:00, 20:20, 21:40, 23:00, 00:20. Each session will last 40 minutes and consist of four 10-minute sketches.

A giant memory, by Francesca Chiacchio
Francesca Chiacchio has adopted Brussels as her home town. She loves drawing and the forms of communication it permits. She's also playful! Francesca has created a giant memory inspired by the objects on show in the museum and the topics it covers. Can you find the matching pairs?
When? Throughout the evening
Where? On the ground floor, in the room overlooking Place Royale
A mysterious machine, with Fountains of Wijn (FOW).
