The Atomium is an iconic architectural symbol for Brussels and Belgium and soon to be the home of the ADAM, Art&Design Atomium Museum.
He loves architecture and science-fiction films.
It was 1958. No, the Atomium isn't a structure brought here by aliens. It was, in fact, created in 1958 for EXPO '58, the Brussels World's Fair.
Couple's trip to the Atomium
From the glass-ceiling lift, to the stunning panoramic view of the whole of Brussels, a visit to the Atomium is well worth it:
- A surrealist journey through enormous tubes and spheres,
- 8 exhibition spaces spread throughout 5 spheres,
- A permanent exhibition about Expo 58 and the fabulous world of the 50's,
- Themed and original temporary exhibitions on architecture and design on display all year round,
- A panoramic restaurant, 92m at its highest point, giving you an unbeatable view of the city while you have a romantic, gourmet evening meal amidst the magical illuminations.
She felt strong emotions, like childhood memories.
He's left imagining a trip into space, in an incredible 9-balled machine.

Exhibitions to discover
EXPO '58 gave us the Atomium and the 2016 exhibition calendar reflects one of the major themes of that event: dreams and utopia.
In the summer and until the beginning of autumn, a section of the Atomium will host a digital (sound & light) installation that will plunge visitors into a dream world and awaken all of their senses.

The year will be rounded off with an exhibition dedicated to the golden age of civil and commercial aviation. A time when taking the plane made you dream and was considered the height of glamour.
The Atomium is the symbol of Brussels and Belgium, a unique monument and an emblematic witness to the Universal Exhibition of 1958....
