Today, Brussels is home to more than 180 nationalities that together make up our capital. The Belgians are the largest group, followed by the French, Romanians and Moroccans.
Everyday people arrive and leave, all with their own dreams, expectations and stories. These personal journeys colour and illustrate the history of Brussels as a cosmopolitan city.

You will learn about the city and the lives of others through memories and stories. Furthermore, the museum invites you to share your own story.
