Things to see and do with kids in Brussels

Brussels Kids Attractions

Brussels is a great destination for kids of all ages. Families strolling through the city's streets should remember to check out the Mannekin-Pis, which the kids will have a good chuckle at. A highlight for cartoon enthusiasts is a visit to the Belgian Centre of Comic Strip Art, featuring displays of favourites such as Tintin and the Smurfs â€' a real treat for the kids.

During the summer months, a trip to one of Brussels's water parks is a must. An outing to Bruparck is not to be forgotten either, where attractions such as the Oceadium water park, Mini Europe and the Atomium guarantee a fun-filled day.

When the weather is miserable and taking the children outdoors isn't an option, families can head to one of Brussels' fabulous museums, such as the Brussels Children's Museum, or the Museum of Natural Sciences of Belgium for slightly older kids, where the dinosaur exhibit is sure to thrill even the most discerning of aspiring young paleontologists. Children will also enjoy a play or film at the Galeries Royales Saint Hubert.
