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.

  • A friend and I got tickets for this place and were expecting something old and boring. To our surprise the building is new and spacious, the layout is really simple and shows the progression since the beginning and how the train changed belgium. Really worth a visit

  • A well exhibitied museum where they work with lights and noises in a really good way. You can go into locomotives and carriages. They demonstrate how railways works and have developed since they were built in Belgium 1835. It's fun for the train lover and infrastructure nerd. Only thing that could be improved are lights on the signs which can be hard to read when the dramatic lights are on the exhibited items.

  • A lot of trains from the steam machines up to modern fast ones. Many of them accessible to visitors, including the engine room'. Nice!!!

  • Nicely arranged locomotives and wagons along with extra items like uniforms, rails, and all kind of train-related things. Worthwhile visiting

  • Excellent museum! There's so much to see and to experience, in the old station building and in 4 new halls. The visit took me 3 hours (I took my time but still didn't see everything). Do use the audioguide or the free app, it's great. I especially loved that you can enter a certain number of the old trains and locomotives in the exhibition, and the interactive game at the end where you can be the train driver. I went there again with 2 children (aged 4 and 7), and the museum offered a children's quest all through the exhibition, which was real fun for the eldest kid. Some parts of the exhibition frightened the 4 year old though, because of the theatrical staging with darkness and frightening lights and noises in some parts). He survived without nightmares, though. :) Just 1 negative remark: prices in the café are ridiculous. 3,5 euro for a cappuccino is simply too much, and certainly not family-friendly.
