Housed in one of the great buildings of the Parc du Cinquentenaire, built in 1880 to commemorate the centenary of Belgian independence. It is reminiscent of Beaulieu Motor Museum, but with some major differences. For a start, there is no movement, and no accompanying activities for children. It is just a collection of static cars. Having said that, I can recommend it as an informative trail through automotive history. A clear process of evolution can be seen, from the first beginnings, either from push bikes or horse-drawn carriages, to the sophisticated, safe and efficient vehicles of today. Nostalgia for forgotten names is rekindled; De Dion, Hispano Suiza, Oldsmobile, Panhard Levassor, Standard. I hadn't realise that in the beginning all of Europe had the driver's seat on the right. It was only in the 1920s that Renault brought in some Americanisms, like having the driver on the left, and it didn't take over immediately. There are some fine specimens here, more than at Beaulieu, and some are quite beautiful
