In the framework of Nocturnes at the Museums
(which allows you to visit for a low price different museums of Brussels in the evening), I propose to visit two places -that myself I haven't see until now- respectivelty the Egmond Palace (which is also a famous conference and diplomatic meetings center in Brussels) and also a museum which is less known, but it seems it has one of the most famous collection of this gender in Europe(especially because the most famous one in Paris was closed last year)- respectively the MEM(Museum of Eroticism and Mithology).

Egmont Palace -Usually closed to the public, the Egmont Palace is opening its doors once again for the Nocturnes. Have you ever wondered where heads of state are received? Don’t miss this opportunity to go up the majestic marble staircase or enter the impressive Mirror Room or Tapestry Room. The Egmont Palace is a jewel in our cultural heritage, waiting to be discovered right in the heart of Brussels.

MEM - Set in a charming 18th-century house in the Sablon neighbourhood, this museum presents the fantastic history of erotic art from Ancient times to present day. This private collection, one of the finest in Europe, provides you with the occasion to see some rare works of art: ivory statues, paintings, sculptures, Graeco-Roman antiques, Japanese prints and pieces by Belgian artists amongst others.

The visit of Egmont Palace will start at 18.00(so please try to be there a bit before) and it is for free. Normally we stay there max 1 hour and then we go to MEM which is closeby ( on Rue St.Anne Protected content that it will take max one hour also.Afterwards we can go to a drink/small meal nearby(there are many bars/taverns in the Sablon area)
