SEE A CENTURY OF AUTOMOBILE HISTORY !When Ghislain Mahy bought his first car in 1944, he had no idea that this 1921 Ford T would be the first car in a collection of more than 1000 vehicles by the year 2000. The first vehicles of the collection were stored for more than half a century in Ghent, at the old “Winter Circus” building. 230 of our mechanical gems were transported to the Brussels “Autoworld” museum in 1986, where they are still on display. The other, approximately 750, vehicles had to wait until 1997 for a new home to be found. This turned out to be the old “Ernaelsteen” factory in Leuze-en-Hainaut, where we are today. The new site is called “Mahymobiles”. This private collection, unique because of the diversity of vehicles included, shows automotive history from it’s humble beginnings at the end of the 19th century to the present day.Amble through the world history of automobiles from 1895 to the present day (300 veteran and vintage vehicles) and gain mechanical knowledge in the educational area. In other areas of Mahymobiles you will discover exceptional collections of miniature cars, historic bicycles & motorcycles, a children’s mini circuit, a gallery dedicated to the evolution of the coach building and a special display on world famous ‘raids’.Come and visit “Mahymobiles” car museum regularly, so you will be able to see for yourself the evolution and continuing expansion.

fascinating collection of interesting cars. The museum is not glamorous or but the cars certainly make up for that. Warm and friendly welcome from English speaking staff. Great to be able to view the storage area as well, dozens of cars awaiting restoration.

This museum is not only for petrol heads a real discovery. Agreed that the accomodation is not as glamorous as Autoworld or other wealthier exhibitors but the variety of the collection and the historical richness are unique. The entire setup goes beyond the museum: a...More

Not really a museum but a piling up of vintage cars, the Mahy collection is a nice effort and a perfect half-day trip for cars enthusiasts. You will see a lot of long forgotten models and will test your knowledge of old-timers. The price fee,...More
