“Impressive building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

The building from the outside is very impressive, and on xmas market time was illuminated . Inside there was the Art of Bricks exhibition (LEGO) which I already visited at home.

“DaVinci Exhibit at the Bourse - Interesting exhibit, but comprised entirely of recreations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

The Bourse is a stock exchange- turned-exhibit-hall. It's worth visiting the Bourse just to see the awe-inspiring building and its still remaining reminders of its history as an exchange. The DaVinci Exhibit is interesting, and it left me with a new (and even greater, if that's possible) appreciation of DaVinci the man through his scientific and engineering studies and achievements. The audio guide is very tedious, but the pieces are fascinating. Just understand before you go that the pieces are all modern-day recreations based on DaVinci's sketches and notes. There are no authentic works in the entire exhibit, from what I could tell. There is a film at the end of the exhibit. If you have the time, it's definitely worth catching the film.

“Impressive architecture imported from the ancient world”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

This monumental building near the Grand Place would be at home in ancient Greece or Rome. It no longer houses the stock exchange whose business these days is largely conducted on-line. Walk around it and judge the size. Many art exhibits are held inside from time to time. By the way, outside, right on the sidewalk, is a two-stall "pissoir" which came in handy in my case.

“Impressive Architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

The Bourse has impressive architecture and many good sculptors worked on the decoration, and this included Rodin when he was starting out.

“'Da Vinci - The Genius' A Brilliant Exhibit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Every once an awhile, an exhibit comes along that sweeps you off your feet. Sometimes it's the beauty of the art. Other times it's what an artist saw that few others have seen. It can be the creativity he or she exhibits.

And then there are those exhibits that display an artist's brilliance. Leonardo da Vinci was an artist and inventor who featured all of these and then some. The exhibit of his works at the Brussels Stock Exchange is a must see for anyone interested in art, engineering, medicine and getting a look into an inventor's mind.

We had many highlights on our recent trip to Brussels but this exhibit was likely THE highlight. We both left the exhibit feeling energized by his creativity and passion. And for how so many things that this man did that changed the world.

Take the 90 minutes to two-hours it takes to see this exhibit and feel reinvigorated. It runs until September 1.
