The BELvue Museum offers a theme-based tour covering Belgium and its history. BELvue chooses to introduce Belgium in seven themes: Democracy, prosperity, solidarity, pluralism, migration, language and Europe. Through modern, visually-pleasing and interactive scenography, visitors learn about the “flat country”, its history, its culture and its specificities.
