Henceforth, when you visit the Museum, you will enjoy a splendid clear view of the Arche du Cinquantenaire and its park. This is due to the fact that parking is no longer authorised on the Esplanade (*) in order to preserve the historic and patrimonial aspects of the site.
Perhaps some may recall … it was the case back in 1972 for the Brussels Grand-Place and we appreciate how enjoyable it is to stroll around there now.
Let us venture that it will restore all the Cinquantenaire’s lustre and fully benefit the surrounding museums and the visitors.
But what then … How to get there?
By public transport:
- Metro: stations Mérode or Schuman
- Bus: lines 22, 27, 61 (stop Gaulois) and 80 (stop Mérode)
- Tram: line 81
If, despite everything, you decide to come by car, there is often space along the park or in the adjoining streets (with parking ticket machines) and two Parking are available nearby:
- Parking Tongres: rue des Tongres 60 – rue Bâtonnier Braffort
- My Park – Galerie du Cinquantenaire: rue des Ménapiens 18

(*) It goes without saying that exceptions are foreseen for people with reduced mobility as also for groups visiting the Museum by coach.
