Safety measures

The BELvue museum has been closely following government recommendations since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis.

Several hygiene measures have been put in place in order to guarantee the safety of each visitor. These measures are likely to evolve according to the adaptations of the government directives. You will find the list of the currently applied measures here below :

1. Before coming to the museum

1. Before coming to the museum
  • It is no longer mandatory to make a reservation for an individual visit to the BELvue museum.

  • Group visits (guided or unguided) are once again permitted by reservation for a maximum of 25 people. Please book your visit via our website or by contacting the guide association of your choice.

  • Wearing a mask is mandatory. If you don't have one, you can buy a bag with a mask and gloves at the entrance.

  • We strongly recommend electronic payments.

  • For the children who participate in the games "Mimi & Momo", "I'm the Minister", "On the road with Zeno" or another activity booklet, please bring along your own drawing and colouring pencils.

  • School groups (kindergarten, primary school, secondary school) may participate again to our educational workshops on citizenship and to (guided) visits in the BELvue museum as a "group class" (pupils and accompanying adults). Reservations for a visit of the museum must be made via [email protected]. Rather interested in a workshop on citizenship ? Please contact us via [email protected]. Social distancing between the different class groups is guaranteed. 

2. On site

  • You follow the route indicated by the posters and stickers on the ground (a map is available at the reception desk). The entrance and exit will be in two different places.

  • You will receive a touch pen in order to use the screens. Several disinfection stations are at your disposal in the building.

  • The restaurant, the terrace, the shop, and the cloakroom are accessible. 

  • Plexiglas screens protect the exchanges at the cash desk. We ask you to give priority to electronic payments as much as possible.

  • Two stewards will monitor visitor access to the museum. One at the reception desk, the other in the museum. One or two stewards will also be present in the Coudenberg Palace.

Thanks to the hygiene and safety measures implemented by the museum, the BELvue has been awarded the 'Brussels Health Safety Label'.
This Brussels health safety label, created by visit.brussels in partnership with the certification company SOCOTEC, aims to enable Belgian and foreign visitors to enjoy the tourist infrastructure of Brussels in complete peace of mind.
