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.

  • One of the best museums within Brussels, really well thought through, safe, entertaining for all ages. It was magical to be able to step into some of the original trains which have been very well preserved and restored. A really great find! Parking next door was just €2 (for up to 4 hours) - allow for about 1h30 to 2h00 to go around the whole thing.

  • Love the way it is presented. If you'll like history you would live this place. 10€ entrance is great value for money.

  • Easy to access at the Shaerbeek railway station. The museum recommends that 90 minuts are devoted to the visit. I recommend between 120 and 180 minutes, because there is really much to experience if you are interested in the railway history and old machines.

  • Fascinating place to explore historical trains. Great to visit with young kids. Really easy to get there ... with the train.

  • Just fantastic. Never expected such a great museum here in Brussel. Very good display and a lot to see and learn.
