La Bourse means the Stock Exchange, but today this building is mainly an exhibition centre. Every month, it's a different one. Check their program if you are interested! It's open on Sunday as well. You can't miss the building, it's just behind the Grand-Place. Go a little bit further forward (leaving the Grand-Place behind you) and you will reach the Asian street, called 'rue Jules Van Praet', where you can eat tasty Asian food. Most of the restaurants in that street are terrific, you can't go wrong!

La Bourse De Bruxelles is an absolutely stunning building located in the very heart of Brussels.
Built in 1873 the stock exchange building has always been a focal point of this part of town and nowadays is used for exhibitions and the like.
The building was designed by Léon Suys in the very eye catching Neoclassical style of architecture and certainly commands your attention.
La Bourse is also a great meeting point and is in an area teeming with pubs,bars and restaurants and some amazing architecture and is not to far from the magnificent Grand Place.
Well worth checking out.

I visited this by joining a walking tour, once a functioning stick exchange, now a place for expos and exhibitions, lots of locals and tourists flock around sitting on the steps, but the building is poorly maintained. two beautiful lion sculptors on either sides of the grand entrance steps, and lofty columns with Allegorical figures adorn its edifice facade and its standing columns t flanked by lions... adds beauty to the structure

I spent about 2 hours visiting this visual and verbal presentation of the history of Pompeii. It cost €16 to get in, but it was worth it to me. It was relaxing... and I enjoyed the headsets that were very clear... and in my language.

On a wet Monday in Brussels we discovered this amazing expo at the Bourse. We'd been to Pompeii and loved it so we were not too sure about visiting a very small sample of the glories of Pompeii. But we loved it. The exhibition focused on reconstructed machines and a selection of artifacts, as well as a virtual reenactment of the destruction. It was very well laid out and not too overwhelming. As it was set within the Bourse building it is possible to see the structure, the lovely ceilings etc. A very worthwhile visit, and it runs until April 2018.
