Free travel to the MIAT with De Lijn

DynamoOPWEG allows groups of schoolchildren (max. 30 pupils) to travel off-peak on regular busses and trams to local ‘culture links’, thereby enabling more children and young people and their teachers to participate in educational activities. The MIAT is a recognized ‘culture link’. DynamoOPWEG meets a genuine need because getting around can be a real barrier for many schools when it comes to taking part in cultural activities outside the school. To request a day pass to transport a school group to the MIAT, go to and follow a few simple steps. To find out more about art and culture at school, go to
