An urban educational project.


The creation and development of the Children's sphere was the result of the Atomium's desire to create an educational project based on the buildings characteristics and potential, but also its history and its symbolic value.

The resulting project invites children to spend a night at the Atomium; to marvel at the view of Brussels from its panorama; and to make the most of their visit to discover other symbolic parts of Brussels…

The desire to highlight the educational aspect of the Atomium is based on the idea that towns and cities play a major role in today's society. Understanding this environment, which is both familiar and discomforting is certainly a key area for the integration and development of children.

The Kids’sphere – The work by the artist Alicia Framis


After 15 years of magical moments with thousands of children and their teachers in the Children’s Sphere, 2021 will be the last year. The Children’s Sphere will close its doors in December 2021.

The Children’s Sphere will be transformed into an exhibition place in order to be accessible to everybody !

Share your memories in the Children’s Sphere from 2006 to 2021 via the Atomium Facebook page or to infoatomiumbe
