Built on the occasion of the 1958 Brussels World Fair, the idea was to have the Atomium as a temporary celebration of scientific ingenuity. But, as happened in Paris with the Eiffel Tower, the citizens decided to keep it. Thus, the Atomium became a prominent part of the urban profile of the city.
Inside, the Atomium is both a museum, an exhibition hall and an observation platform. The high-speed elevator will take you to the top in a matter of seconds, where you will know the history of the Atomium in its museums and you will see the latest in concept art in the huge exhibition halls.
