Train World - Review

The official museum of the National Railway Company of Belgium opened only in 2015. In that short time tourists have warmed up to it a lot. The museum tells the story of trains in Europe, particularly Brussels. To do that it uses a collection of 22 sparkling locomotives from all across train history. The stars of their exhibit are the Pays de Waes, oldest preserved locomotive in Continental Europe (from 1842), a 19th century railway bridge, and the sceneries of Belgium and Europe recreated here by cartoonists. There are over 1200 items to be browsed and interacted with documents, films, historical artefacts. Check out the train driving simulator. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Brussels itinerary 2 days.

Train World, Brussels Reviews

  • A nice place with a variety of interesting exhibits of trains. Spent around 1.5 hours there just taking pictures and wandering around. You can even board some old carriage trains! There is a parking lot right next to the museum which just costs €1/hr (but don't forget to ask for a parking voucher when you purchase the tickets at the office). Great place to go and totally worth it!

  • Wow. As a Brussels resident I had heard once or twice about Train World but it was not a place top of mind. Now it is. Great expo, beautiful location, the kids had tons of fun with the luggage game (a treasure hunt to learn). Even Grandma had a great time specially at the end where she could nap on different seats of various high-speed trains.

  • Went to the Atomium as well as Train World. Reading other reviews it seemed difficult to get to them both. We found it easy on the trams. Day travel pass in Brussels well worth getting. Enjoyed our day out very much. Had a meal at Train World which was excellent and good value for money.

  • Good experience and knowledge about how trains started back in the day. Would have been better if not too dark, you would be able to see the trains in more detail. A great day out as a family, wasn't busy at all which was a bonus. After the museum we had a late lunch at the restaurant there, food was great.

  • A wonderful day for a family. Real trains, installation, models, action models and much more. One of the best museums I've ever been in. Pretty large btw, so you will spend there several hours for sure - be ready. There all you need thought: restaurant, benches, toilets...
