About the event
This magical building was only open to royalty and courtiers back in the 1600s when it was built, but now it’s open for all to explore and completely free for children. There’s a short video and a free audio tour to help kids explore the building’s history but of course, the real highlight is the magnificent ceiling.
Kids will be mesmerised by Flemish artist Sir Peter Paul Rubens’ incredible ceiling paintings and royally good architecture, which make great inspiration for a craft activity when you get home.
If you’ve had a long day exploring and sightseeing, you’ll be glad to visit if only to relax on one of the many comfy beanbags!
