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.

This museum is such a highlight. They have full size trains in there. Multiple of them! Some extremely old ones too. It was such a treat. We ended up spending 3 hours here, especially if you really enjoy engines and the mechanics behind these really old trains. Plus they’ve done such a fantastic job just curating the entire experience. I can’t emphasize enough how amazing this museum is.
Absolutely brilliant! This is such a great museum! It has loads of trains and even a simulator. It makes you feel incredibly nostalgic for a period most of us didn't even actually knew! And it's not only for kids !
Very nice museum with lots of great trains to look at, interactive at times and just an overall very good overview of the history of the railways. Great to visit with friends or with kids, a good time for all ages. The simulator at the end is fun as well.
If you love trains, it's got it all! A really good idea on a rainy day in Brussels. (Could be a little bit lighter though)
Very nice museum, we visited now a second time because they have a Lego exhibition. The museum itself is well done, it's interesting for young and old and we'll organised. We all enjoyed it, there's some trying out things, some models, some science, some recreations. The Lego exhibition was poor, few models, small play areas an a very small selection in the shop. Do go visit but don't revisit for the Lego...
