MMM – MigratieMuseumMigration

© Foyer

The MigratieMuseumMigration opened on 12 October 2019 in a late-19th-century building in Rue des Ateliers/Werkhuizenstraat, in the centre of Molenbeek-Saint-Jean/Sint-Jans-Molenbeek. The municipality experienced significant industrialisation from the end of the 19th century onwards and has been substantially shaped by a long history of migration. Today, Brussels is home to a vibrant mix of 180 nationalities. The museum aims to reflect this cosmopolitan character, mirroring an ever-shifting dynamism. By telling the story of the first generation of guest workers as well as that of expats, war refugees and also Europeans who have chosen to settle in Brussels, the museum invites visitors to discover each other’s experiences through testimonies and memories, and also to initiate a dialogue, a conversation. The fully accessible garden, complete with its authentic Italian wood-burning oven, is a great place to meet. It adjoins seven works by contemporary artists on the theme of migration, which are exhibited between the street and the garden itself.

Guided tours available.

Your booking will also give you entry to the interactive exhibition “The palace of normality and strangeness”, about prejudice, diversity and democracy. Go to Rue des Ateliers/Werkhuizenstraat 40 after your visit to the MigratieMuseumMigration.
