By car :
Driving through and finding a parking space in the city centre can be difficult due to traffic. For this reason, mim strongly advises you to use one of the specially designated car parks to relieve congestion located on the outskirts of Brussels (for example, those close to the metro stations of Erasme, Delta or Kraainem) and to then take public transport.
If, however, you wish to park your car closer to the museum, we recommend that you use the Congrès-Albertine underground car park (paying).
For disabled visitors, two specially designated parking places can be found in front of the museum entrance.

Since January 1st, 2018 the Brussels-Capital Region has become a Low Emission Zone (LEZ). If you are entering the city in a car or van, check here to find out whether you are allowed to drive your vehicle within the LEZ. If you do not meet the conditions, we would remind you that there are park-and-ride car parks on the access routes leading into Brussels as well as alternatives to the car. If your vehicle does not comply with the LEZ access criteria: You can buy a day pass or use one of the many available alternatives to travel in the LEZ. Vehicles registered abroad must first be registered before travelling in the LEZ. Registration is free.
Thank you for taking part in the regional effort aimed at improved air quality!

Villo By bicycle :

In 2009, the Brussels-Capital Region inaugurated a system of shared bicycles across its territory. With bike station No. 20 located just beside the museum, it's always easy to take or leave your bicycle!
