COVID-19: While touristic sites, attractions and museums are open to the public in Wallonia, theme parks sadly are closed for the time being. Access to wildlife parks (their indoor spaces especially) also is limited. Click here for a detailed list. 

We do our best to keep our information up to date but it's always best to check with the site you hope to visit before heading there - by phone, email, social media or simply by visiting their website - to see their latest opening hours and entry conditions. Some will prefer you to book your ticket in advance.

Wallonia contains over 300 museums, showcasing all of the region’s art from ancient to modern - plus music, photography and history from the Bronze age to the Space Age.

There is something to suit everyone’s taste – from the more traditional Mons Memorial Museum and the Hôpital Notre-Dame à la Rose in Lessines, to the more contemporary La Boverie in Liège, Hergé museum in Louvain-la-Neuve, the Spa Francorchamps Track Museum and the Photography Museum in Charleroi.
