Exhibitions* (NL / FR / ENG)

In the light of the corona crisis, we have taken a series of measures for your safety and that of our employees to make our exhibitions as safe as possible. For example, it was necessary to partially or completely seal off or remove certain exhibits that could not be sufficiently decontaminated or where insufficient physical distance could be maintained. Discover which exibits.

* Your day ticket gives access to all exhibitions at Technopolis.
