Things to do with a toddler or kids in Brussels: Experiment at Technopolis
Hellooo in there
So, um, its supposedly summer but you really can’t tell if you look out of the window. I have been pulling every trick out of the hat this week keeping the little ones entertained. Getting a bit worn on the same places led us to some searching for a new, fun indoor option. I had heard about Technopolis before but as it was geared towards older children and on the outskirts of Mechelen, we passed, until now. Packing up the little ones and lunch we headed to check it out!
What a seriously cool place. Picture an enormous warehouse packed to the brim with fun, hands on science experiments. From the simple and instructive (brush the huge set of teeth with a huge toothbrush) to truly awe inspiring (projected butterflies landing on your shadow’s hands and head). An entire section devoted to water and enormous bubbles (stand in a bubble!). This place is awesome. I am not sure how long it would take you to try everything there but I am thinking weeks. Round it out with a cafe and shop and you are pretty much set for the long, dark winter…or summer.
At 2.5 years old, Bababoo was just barely scratching the surface. She realized that there were a lot of amazing things but was not entirely sure how to engage with them. I think this age and up would get a kick out of Technopolis. I wonder if they have an adult night.
