The House is a museum where your children will uncover one surprise after another.
The large natural history collection turns the museum into an exciting adventure book you don’t want to stop reading. A new chapter starts behind every corner and allows you to discover new treasures: minerals, fossils, insects, shells, birds, etc.
The Heritage App gives you a lot of extra information on ‘Kei Cool’, an exhibition about rocks and minerals. It answers questions like, “What is desert rose?”, “How do tectonic plates move?” and “Which mineral is used to make the base of the FIFA World Cup?”. Download the Heritage App here.
The 'Susketwiet' sensory and listening trail in the bird room introduces you to the museum's birds. A branch leads you to our little informants’ bronze replicas. Our sensory table allows you to explore all the birds’ different characteristics (nest, beak, legs, etc.), not only with your hands, but also with your ears. Tailored for visually impaired visitors, but extra fun for everyone.
To make a visit to the museum more enjoyable for people with a visual impairment, there are lines of tactile paving throughout the museum and in the stairwell you will find an adapted banister with Braille indications. In addition, the website contains accessible route descriptions.
Also check out The world of Kina: the Garden. This location, which includes an educational garden, is not within walking distance from the House, but it can easily be reached from Sint-Pietersplein by bus no. 5 (Tolhuislaan).
With you ticket for “the Garden” you can also visit “the House” within 6 months.
