The Museums of the City of Brussels consists of eclectic and exciting ensemble of five museums in the centre of the Belgian capital: the « flagship » museum occupies the King’s House, on the Grand Place, and displays a range of significant works on city’s history. A stone’s throw away, the Fashion & Lace Museum presents its collection along with temporary exhibitions. A short stroll from the Manneken-Pis fountain, the small GardeRobe MannekenPis museum, also opened in 2017, showcases a very lively and completely atypical collection: the Manneken-Pis costumes. A few minutes away, the Sewer Museum highlights one of the most vital requirement for any city to function: the sewers. Finally, next to La Bourse, the old stock exchange, the archaeological site known as Bruxella 1238 houses the remains of a 13th century Franciscan convent.
During this workshop we will present the various recent and particularly innovative mediation projects: a sound experience, a giant game, a visit by flashlight, the making of a scarf, among others. A different way to see museums!
Speakers: Sylvie Jacobs, Patty Van Brabant, Jean-Luc Petit, Aude Hendrick, Caroline Esgain, and Vinciane Godfrind from the Museums of the City of Brussels
