A wide selection of locomotives and luxury wagons are on display. Multilingual panels provide explanations on how the railway network developed in Belgium during the Industrial Revolution.

It's a bit out of the way but well worth the effort. In fact, don't drive and take public transport there. Great museum that starts a bit geeky in a pretty boring entrance hall then delivers a super experience. Exhibits you can climb on and...More

It’s great! There is a children’s train play area and a train driving simulator. All the displays are in English and you can get an audio guide.
