The Mundaneum uses temporary exhibitions and activities to explore the unique project of its founders, Paul Otlet and Henri La Fontaine: universal knowledge for world peace!
The Mundaneum preserves a unique heritage recognized by the UNESCO. Archive center and space for temporary exhibitions, it highlights the legacy and ideas of its founders, the Nobel Peace Prize winner Henri La Fontaine and the father of documentation Paul Otlet. At the turn of the 20th century, these two Belgians devised a system for collecting, classifying and searching all of the world's knowledge. With a noble purpose: world peace.
Today confronted by the information society foreseen by its founders, the Mundaneum builds bridges between heritage and digital, between education and technology, between inner peace and the world around us. Temporary exhibitions, guided tours, digital devices, thematic conferences and workshops make the Mundaneum a crossroad of knowledge, from yesterday to tomorrow!
During exhibitions, it is open from Tuesday to Friday from 13.00 to 17.00 and on Saturday and Sunday from 11.00 to 18.00. It is closed on Mondays. Research in the archives (Rue des Passages, 15) is possible on prior request : Monday to Friday from 09.00 to 16.00
