On a regular basis, NATO organises exhibitions in the Press Entrance at NATO Headquarters in Brussels, Belgium. We invite you to a virtual visit of these exhibitions by clicking on the banners.
The only body established by the North Atlantic Treaty
of 1949, the Council has remained the nerve centre of NATO, reaffirming
the solidarity of the Alliance and the independence of its member countries
whenever it meets. Take a look from the Chairman's seat or step into the
middle of the Council using Quicktime VR technology.
On 16 October 1967, NATO's International Staff and the then-15 national delegations to the North Atlantic Council (NAC) settled into their new Headquarters, over the former runways of the old Brussels airport. This exhibition looks back at 30 years of NATO Headquarters in Brussels.
Unbeknown to the public, Manfred Wrner, the late NATO Secretary General who died in August 1994, had wounded boys and girls saved and given medical treatment in Western Europe. Forty children from Bosnia, who were taken to Frankfurt, drew pictures for the late Secretary General, painting their fears and their experiences to unburden their hearts. They also wanted to say thank you.
