There are several interactive sections including a new paleoLAB (open: sessions held Mon—Sun 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm; admission an extra 2.50 euros), where kids can uncover fossils using tools.
Adult 7 euros; children aged 6—17 4.50 euros; under 6s free. Free entry is also granted with the Brussels Card — see Brussels insider tips.
