(Closed): Explore Jette and ADAM museum on 28 April with Brussels Greeters

18:39 02/03/2019

Located in the northwest of Brussels, Jette is a resolutely green part of town with woods and parks, the ruins of a Roman-Gallic villa, a full-size copy of the Lourdes Grotto and of course the Magritte Museum (the artist lived in Jette for more than 20 years).

In a recent Bulletin reader survey, locals described Jette as "beautiful and calm" and "on the verge of becoming the Brussels commune par excellence".

About the free tour

The Greeters concept was born 25 years ago in New York but has since spread around the world. Now more than 100 volunteers share their love of the different parts of Brussels, with tailor-made tours in a multitude of languages.

Our guide, Luisa, is an enthusiastic local resident keen to show visitors around Jette's best sights and hidden gems. We will meet her in Jette on Sunday 28 April at 14.30 - and after a two-hour walking tour in English, it will be time to visit ADAM, next to the Atomium in neighbouring Laeken. The museum closes at 18.00.

ADAM Night Fever

ADAM, the Atomium's Art and Design Museum, opened in 2015 and is devoted to 20th and 21st century art and design. Their latest exhibition, Night Fever, is a fascinating overview of the relationship between design and club culture - looking at how nightclubs have been one of the most important design spaces of contemporary culture, an important platform and inspiration for artists and designers from all over the world.

Sorry! All the places for this tour have now been booked. We'll organise another one soon.
