A Shot in the Rain: Brussels, Belgium

With an average of 18 days every month with at least some precipitation, there’s a better than even chance that it will rain on any given trip to Brussels. They are prepared for that contingency with plenty of things to keep you entertained indoors out of the weather.
This month we’ll get up high in the giant Atomium, a structure shaped like a giant iron crystal. We’ll go down deep into the underground archaeological site of the Former Palace of Brussels at Coudenberg. We’ll pay a visit to some famous cartoon characters at the Belgian Center for Comic Strip Art, and spend some quality time using our auditory senses in the Musical Instrument Museum. Finally, we’ll take a side trip with the kids to the largest toy museum in the world, the Flanders Toy Museum in Mechelen.
