The Design Museum Brussels, initiated following the acquisition of a private collection by the Atomium, is a place dedicated to design and its history. Since 2015, the museum’s collection, The Plastic Design Collection, has circumscribed the landscape of plastics in design from the 1950s to the present day. Alongside this collection, in September 2020 the museum opened Belgisch Design Belge, a new permanent exhibition space dedicated to Belgian design and its history.
Enriched by a programme of temporary exhibitions, the Design Museum Brussels also explores other fields of design creation and its impact on society and our daily lives.
Through its exhibitions, guided tours, workshops, conferences and events, the museum aims to make design understandable and accessible to everyone.
