Dear Visitors,

If you’ve not yet visited our temporary exhibition Beurk! Yuck! Igitt! The food we love to hate, please come soon! It’s open until 18 April 2021. From 5 May 2021, the Alimentarium will be focusing on the topic of veganism.

Preparing for your visit
Safety is of prime importance for the Alimentarium. We can therefore assure you that we are taking the COVID-19 situation very seriously. We have taken the following steps for your protection.
Philippe’s pots and pans
Philippe would like you to invite him over, virtually speaking of course! This new culinary workshop is sure to be a big hit. Once a month, our chef Philippe Ligron is suggesting a casual online group workshop as participants each make a dish in their own kitchen. A surprise guest will join in the fun!
Cooking together, apart
Put your apron on and let’s get connected! We don’t intend to let the distance between us stop us from cooking together… so the Alimentarium is now running culinary workshops… online!
The Alimentarium prepares tasty takeaways!

Our team of chefs will be preparing a selection of tempting takeaways! As for those little cravings, our Café will offer a range of delicious takeaway snacks, hot drinks and homemade cakes.

We have more good news for you too! Our Shop is also reopening, stocked with a stash of unusual homeware.

Gift Vouchers
Here’s THE perfect gift that’s sure to please anyone and everyone! If you can’t decide which of our numerous activities would best suit your loved ones, why not give them gift vouchers? They can then decide when and how to use them

“A self-service gourmet restaurant may seem a little unusual, but it’s what’s on the plate that counts. The food is pleasantly surprising, very good even, with a choice of dishes and finesse in the flavour. Well done! Keep it up.”
