“Good, but could be better”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Large home converted into a number of children's play areas. In the colder months, or on a wet day, you have to get there early or you will queue for a while, and the house is only open for 2.5 hours (1430 to 1700). You should also hurry to sign your children up for the various workshops offered, as places are limited (cooking, theatre). It can be good fun, but a little expensive as accompanying adults also have to pay the €7.50 entrance fee.

“A good play center but not a museum”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

My 6 year old had a great time here, staff were great and spoke perfect english. He loved getting dressed up, doing some cooking and doing some of the arty activities

The two downsides is why oh why is it only open for 2.5 hours, we only got to do about 70% of the stuff and at £21 for the three of us was quite expensive. Also we were only in brussels for 1.5 days and I slightly regret not doing something specific to the city, although it was a great play center, it could of been anywhere.

“Musee des Enfants”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Wonderful place to spend at least 3 hours. Alternating play - educational and fun on different floors. My kids loved the craft room and both built wooden structures with a hammer and nail. Even a cookery lesson for kids to participate.
If you are walking from a bus/ tube worth planning the distance in advance. We didn't so had a tiring walk. (typical Brits on hols, hey...!)

“This is NOT a museum! This is a good educational and clever play area for children”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

When our kids were very young, my wife would spend whole afternoons at this place with them.
They loved it because many of the proposed activities are original.
We were there again not long ago and saw again young children having great fun.
We recommend this place for children not older than, say 7 or 8.
