Overview

About The Atomium

School Groups can sleep in iconic structure

Facebook
The Atomium is an icon of Brussels built for 1958 World Fair Exposition, at a time when the belief in progress, science and modernity was immensely strong. The structure symbolises an iron crystal, magnified 165 billion times.

Spanish artist Alicia Framis was commissioned in 2005 to create an educational project based on the building’s characteristics and features as well as its history and its symbolic value. The kids sphere captures the optimism of a future enabled by technology and science, in a way that reflects the insights of the world in the 21st century.

One ball of The Atomium has been divided in separate functions: mini spheres (water molecules) suspended from the ceiling to sleep in, the floor for workshops/playground, a ‘petit club sandwich’ and washing facilitoes. Children spend a night at The Atomium marveling at the panoramic view of Brussels from its spheres; and make the most of their visit by discovering other symbolic parts of Brussels from a unique vantage point.  The desire to highlight the educational aspect of The Atomium is based on the idea that towns and cities play a major role in society today.

The Atomium is made available for pre-booked groups of primary school children aged between 6 and 12.
