It was a rainy Monday so we decided to visit this museum. It was a great way to spend about 90 minutes. When we visited there were a number of Ferrari's on display in celebration of their 75th anniversary. Even without these there's a great collection of cars and motorcycles on display.

It wasn't very busy when we were here. It's a great change from the art and history museums we usually see when we're in Europe. There's a small restaurant/coffee shop on site.

An incredible collection of vehicles - showcasing the development of the auto. Very well done.
Do get the audiovisual unit (i did not receive headphones and was struggling a bit with the volume).
Well suited for children with some interactive sections. You can even have a picture taken in a “F1” car.
Walk around at your leisure. I also visited the shop and bought some gifts.

Absolutely a great place to visit, no matter what your age is.... So much history inside there!... It is so well organized, not crowded at all this period of the year! Perfect! At the end of your “trip with the cars” you can enjoy a beer or a coffee and you can also buy some nice souvenirs!🤗

Let's be real, it's a bunch of cars with notes explaining the history of the car. It's well laid out and next to a great park. My 2 year old son and I had a great time here. He walked around and pointed at stuff and I quickly read things. We'd go back.

Definitely worth a visit if you like your cars. They have vehicles from the 1800s through to recent modern day - over 200 different exhibits at a guess - all under one roos, so ideal for a rainy day, and situated in an impressive park, Parc Cinquantenaire, complete with impressive architecture and great views. Could have put 80+ photos up, but here's just one of the American cars on show.

If you like old cars, this is the best auto museum we have been to. And we have been to quite a few! The cars are displayed nicely, with descriptions in 4 languages including English. This is a real plus in Brussels which has quite a few museums with no English translations - such a shame. It is conveniently located by several other museums, including the military one. This is quite a large museum with the largest amount of vehicles we have seen displayed. All counties are represented. We thought the admission price was very reasonable- 6 euros. They have a nice little bistro inside, as well as a gift shop. The prices on original collectible models were quite high, but they had some nice little new model cars for a grandson or nephew for a reasonable price. You just have to look. There is a lot on display.

This dusty old place has an amazing collection of old European and American autos from across 3 centuries, including a lot of models we'd never seen before. What the museum lacks in details about the autos it makes up for in it's large and varied collection.

My boyfriend works in marketing for Renault and BMW, which is why we naturally dropped by Autoworld during our trip to Brussels. The many vintage models and the Porsche 70 years’ exhibition were not disappointing. But what happened to us in the museum gift shop still makes my blood boil today explaining my rating. Beware of condescending and racist staff when you go there!

After the visit, my boyfriend went into the crowded gift shop while I waited inside the museum building near its cafe. Knowing that I collect postcards, he chose one for me and went to the counter to pay with his credit card. He was refused because they didn’t accept card payments for €1. He came back towards me to fetch loose change and I was inside the museum café and away from the gift shop exit, which was in the opposite direction.

To my astonishment, he hadn’t even made it to the café when a giant of a white man ran from behind the counter, across the store behind my Indian boyfriend, who was half his size, yelled down at him and tore the postcard away from his hand accusing him of stealing. He tried to explain that he was fetching the change from me given that this very man had just told him that his credit card was not accepted for payment of €1.

Now can anyone explain to me why someone having just paid €24 for his girlfriend and himself to spend one hour among vintage cars would steal a €1 postcard from the gift shop? And while going away from the exit on top of that?

My boyfriend remained calm, took the change from me and went back to pay for the wretched postcard. But I was so upset and when we left the gift shop, he told me that he didn’t even get an apology or even a half-apology from the bloke. I’m sad we had to go through that terrible experience just because his brown skin made the white Belgian racist single him out in the crowd as a thief. I’m sorry but Autoworld, Brussels will always have a racist connotation in my mind now.
