Atomium

from symbol to icon

An architectural landmark and a feat of engineering,

the Atomium is an iconic feature of Brussels's landscape.

Following its inauguration in 1958 and its renovation in 2006, there will be a further important date in the Atomium’s history, as December 11th 2015 will mark its expansion as a centre for the arts. With the opening of the Art & Design Atomium Museum | ADAM |, we are shaping the future of the most Belgian building of all and re-affirming the cultural dimension of this major tourist attraction through the creation of the new museum.


As well as providing Brussels with another museum, the ADAM will ensure the preservation of a collection. It also enables us to meet three major challenges: to develop a cultural attraction suited to the tastes and interests of today’s visitors, to continue the enhancement of the Heysel Plateau, as part of its forthcoming major development and economic transformation, and finally, to help the Atomium maintain its popularity as a venue by diversifying and expanding its presentations and activities.
