LAST CALL: detailed programme

Friday March 2nd: 17:00 > 20:00

Afterwork – Informative drink reception about MUSEUM IN PROGRESS

From March 5th 2018 until 2021, the exhibition halls of the Museum of Ixelles will no longer be accessible to the public in order for major expansion works to be carried out. What do they consist of and which architectural project was selected? What will be keeping the Museum team busy during this period? Will it be possible to admire the works outside the Museum ? In order to answer all these questions, we are inviting you along to a friendly meeting with the municipality’s authorities, the Museum of Ixelles and the B-architecten team:
- Artistic installation by the students of the sound and image departments of ESRA Brussels
- Guided tours retracing the history of the Museum of Ixelles: 18:00 (NL), 18:30 and 19:00 (FR)
- Free access. Registration at the museum on the day for the guided tours.
- Food truck and bar
- Free drink for the 500 first visitors.
