In 2018, the Atomium celebrates its 60th anniversary.
To mark the occasion, Brussels’s iconic attraction will be hosting three temporary exhibitions (two of which will be held in the ADAM - Brussels Design Museum, 150m from the Atomium). Collectively entitled Galaxy 58, they will be devoted to Expo 58. 

To enable visitors to see all three exhibitions on one ticket, the entry fee for the Atomium will automatically include access to the ADAM - Brussels Design Museum.
