SCIENTASTIC IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED. IT IS SCHEDULED TO OPEN AGAIN ON SEPTEMBER 1ST 2013An unforgettable experience. Using light, sound, smell and touch, come and discover 80 exciting and interactive hands-on experiments, based on the themes of entertaining physics, illusions and the five senses. The experiments are even more surprising that they use very simple tools from our daily life.

The proprietor has done a great job with minimal funding, proving that science centers don't need to spend thousands of $ or Euros to give a great science experience and be fun.

I very much enjoyed this little museum as well as the people inside it. Considering I was walking around for the majority of my stay in Brussels for 2 weeks, this was a delightful attraction for children as well as adults inside the metrostop itself.

This underground museum was one of the stuffiest, smelliest places I could stand being in for more than an hour. The mirror show was great fun. I recommend this museum to make your kids curious about science.More

Scientastic is a great experience if you are city breaking in Brussels with children especially on a dull, rainy day. We spent about 2 hours in there and my 7 years old loved it. They provide an handbook in English that explains the experiments. Staff...More
