MuseumPASSmusées (Belgium Museum Pass)

I do write a lot about the various museums & places of interest in Belgium, that I visit almost free of cost with the help of MuseumPASSmusées. While I do tag them together with the MuseumPASSmusées label, I realized that it would be better if I compile it all together! So here are the places that I visited which are included in MuseumPASSmusées!

WHAT IS MUSEUMPASSMUSÉES?
A Museum pass is usually an annual subscription for 1 or more museums. While there are passes meant for 1 museum or 1 place of interest, that wouldn't work for me (unless if I was living in Paris in which case I'd definitely get a Louvre Museum pass!). I would really like to explore and see more places and lesser-known museums. So ideally I'd prefer the multi-site ones. 
The concept of Museum pass isn't new to me. When I was living in London, I had the English Heritage Pass. So as soon as I moved to Brussels, I searched to see if there are any multi-site passes here and voila, MuseumPASSmusées came up.

HOW MUCH DOES THE MUSEUMPASSMUSÉES COST?
It costs €59 per year currently. 

IS MUSEUMPASSMUSÉES WORTH IT?
If you're an adult above 18 yrs of age, it is worth it. Definitely. 200%. No doubt. I mean, just the 3 museums in Cinquantenaire Park in Brussels together costs €32 for 1 visit. Another day, on a trip to, say, Antwerp, if you buy a 24hrs Antwerp city card for €29, you're already spending €61. This is just 2 days worth of places to see! With a MuseumPASSmusées you can visit all these places and 200+ more museums multiple times for an entire year. It is an absolute no brainer to invest in a MuseumPASSmusées even if you're staying in Belgium for 6 months or so, or even if you're living in the Netherlands or France for that matter if you love travelling and exploring various cities of Belgium. MuseumPASSmusées is just ridiculously cheap!
Plus..... You also get 50% off on 5 tickets of SNCB-NMBS!!!! Literally, this is one of the ways to save money when you're living in Belgium.

WHERE TO BUY MUSEUMPASSMUSÉES?
Online on the official website of MuseumPASSmusées or at the ticket office of one of the participating museums.

So, how did I fare? Making the best out of the MuseumPASSmusées. So far I've renewed my subscription twice. So I've spent about €150 on this in the last 3 years, but I've visited the above list of 74 museums so far with it (of the 200+ museums under it), which doesn't count the 30+ visits to just AutoWorld alone (not kidding; the gentleman at the ticket office knows our names & faces), 3-5 visits each to Meise Botanic Gardens, Train World, Comic Strip Museum, Arts & History Museum and Military History Museum. PLUS I also used 10+ of their SNCB-NMBS 50% off tickets! I did a quick calculation and I have saved more than €500 easily (as well as my sanity with my toddler, if the weather is too bad to be outside)!!!
If you're living in Belgium, just buy this! If you have a toddler all the more reason to buy. especially right now - while once in while hiking in snow is great in winters, more often, being indoors inside a museum is just easier & more comfortable.
