Discover the incredible Art & Design Atomium Museum!

ADAM – the abbreviation for theArt and Design Atomium Museum – is the new must-see cultural venue in Brussels!

Located near the famous Atomium, the museum and art centre dedicated to 20th and 21st century design opened its doors in December 2015. It is the result of the Atomium’s exhibitions department’s desire to obtain a venue large enough to host large-scale exhibitions. The building is divided into two parts: on the one hand it presents a permanent collection and on the other temporary exhibitions.

The museum’s permanent exhibition presents Plasticarium, the exceptional private collection of the famous collector Philippe Decelle. More than 2,000 plastic objects designed during the 20th century are exhibited on nearly 2,500 m². Everyday objects, works of art, design objects… Hundreds of fascinating plastic objects are on display here every day! If you are lucky enough to visit several years in a row, you will discover new pieces every time! As the number of objects is considerable, the museum has chosen to rotate each year so that each new visit is a discovery!
