You speak Swedish, Italian, Arabic or Spanish or even English or French, and you’d like to discover Brussels’ museums in your own language?

MuseumTalks are alternative audio guides for a number of Brussels museums. They’re recorded by artists, musicians, media personalities as well as by anonymous visitors. The guide are original commentaries lasting around two minutes on works or items that have made an impression on them in one way or another. And all in no fewer than 25 languages!

All the MuseumTalks are on a new site where you’ll also discover a large number of illustrated examples.

The MuseumTalks project enables the museums’ doors to be opened to a very diverse and international public. This is why the MuseumTalks project is enjoying the financial support of the French Community Commission.

How to listen to MUSEUMTALKS?

Select a museum, subject or language. Then click on the mp3 of your choice and just listen to it. And if it gives you a flavour for more, then download your favourite MuseumTalks for free on your mobile phone or mp3 and… set off for the museum.

You can hear: a rapper dedicating a song to the painter Magritte; a Spanish brewer evoking the particular charms of the Brussels Gueuze Museum; a Greek speaking over an eccentric work by James Ensor, an Italian opera singer about how he got
into opera, an English student lingering over the power of the ginko leafs; a Chinese student talking about the Museums of the Far East, etc. The aim, of course, is to add new audio fragments to the site regularly.
