Brussels Museums Nocturnes


You think you know Manneken-Pis well. But you will be surprised to hear the legends and history of our little guy!


With our talented storyteller and our indefatigable guide, describe the incredible collection of outfits for Brussels’ emblematic figure.


Feel like a stroll through the city? Follow our guided tour From Manneken-Pis to Janneke-Pis. Starting from the GardeRobe MannekenPis, you will hear the incredible history of the little peeing boy and his importance at the heart of Brussels. The guided walk takes you along the traces of several ancient fountains with a stop at the corner of the rue de l’Etuve and the rue du Chène! For a fine finish, the statue of Janneke-Pis, the female counterpart to our little guy.
