Save to your city mapThe Atomium was built for the Expo World Exhibition in 1958 and is a well-known futuristic symbol of the city. The extraordinary structure with 9 spheres, and 20 tubes is open daily to the public and provides a stunning 360° panorama view of Brussels. It is also used for hosting both temporary and permanent exhibitions. It is situated within the Heizelpark.
@hfiguiere The Atomium on the Expo grounds in Brussels was the same. Which is odd as it's a paid-admission tourist attraction.

A bit pricey but it's worth it, especially the panorama. Try the combined ticket (Atomium+Mini-Europe) to get the full experience.
