We strongly recommend to use public transport. The parking possibilities are limited in the area of the Museum and the car park is very small and accessible in priority to visitors with reduced mobility (visitors with reduced mobility are asked to contact our Security Service (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least one day prior to your visit so that we can prepare for your arrival). Take a look at the important information for car and coach drivers below.
Find your way to the Museum by public transport (Belgian Rail, STIB/MIVB, TEC and De Lijn) with www.belgiantrain.be/en/travel-info/current/current-departure-times.

The part of Wiertz Street near the European Parliament is closed for vehicles. As a consequence there is no direct connection anymore between Belliard Street and the Museum. You can reach us via Chaussée de Wavre.
Info about remote connection will be provided to delegates closer to the date of the event
