World’s fairs: hubs for exchanges between people from around the world
World’s fairs or ‘Universal Expositions’ are events that bring together science and art, innovation and industry, culture and leisure. What better way than international pavilions to exchange ideas, meet people from other countries and forge closer ties between nations? Take a panoramic tour of landmarks telling the story of these events that have shaped the urban landscape of our city: the Heysel plateau, Avenue de Tervueren/Tervurenlaan, the AfricaMuseum and the Solbosch site. You’ll learn everything you’ll ever need to know about world’s fairs!
