Quai des Péniches, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium
Really far from the centre and in the best neighbourhood. The place itself is huge and cold. Not recommended at all
A semi-abandoned warehouse without personality and character, with the Pompidou logo being the only commonality with the Parisian centre . The exhibition consists of a limited selection of unimpressive installations and empty pavilions with scarce maintenance and covered in dust (I literally sneezed throughout all my tour). I left with the impression of being part of an hipster joke. 14€ Is definitely I rip off for what is offered and I ‘d recommend to visit the free areas before buying the ticket.
Came here for the food market and the vegan brunch. It is a bit of a vague concept, not really clear. But once you get over the vagueness and just get some food and drinks you can enjoy sitting outside overlooking the water. There are some strange art and architecture exhibitions inside the building, and also a concept store with very nice jewelry and some clothes. From what I understand the building is still in progress, so perhaps a bit later this year everything will be clearer :)
Interesting combination of exhibitions and performances. Nice brunch on Sundays. The space itself, an old Citroen garage and factory, is well worth the visit.
If you like new art, go for it. Expositions often made from trashy recyclates, interesting ideas, I like it.
