About Atomium

The Atomium, a techno-savvy museum exhibiting a single atom of crystal magnified 165-times is a technological excellence. The combination of five spheres out of which one sphere is a permanent exhibit and the rest four exhibits temporary. This place has rotating spheres with about nine stainless steel designs which are an amazing sight to behold. More like Brussel's Eifel Tower when it is lit up and glistens at night. A complete Atomic blast from the past when you ride up to the top and through various levels. Built during the 1958 World War Fair this place acclaims its worth to be visited. The Pictures, Light Shows and small Exhibits are intriguing to be seen and applauded.
