    A very unique and captivating structure. The size and concept are certainly worth the trip. €16 per adult gets you into the structure and an entry into the design museum.

    Lots of interesting things to see.

    Autoworld, is in a cavernous, historic building that houses an impressive, permanent collection of over 300 vintage classics, racing, luxury, concept and prototype automobiles, spanning over a century of automotive history. Many of them were new to me, being exclusively European marketed only.

    You don't have to be a diehard car lover to enjoy Autoworld and view its great vehicles on display. Many are rare and many new names will be unfamiliar, but the beauty, glamor and styles of all will impress anybody.

    Overall, AutoWorld offers a comprehensive and captivating journey through automotive history, showcasing a diverse collection of vehicles that will appeal to car enthusiasts and possibly even those who just like to ride in cars.

    This is a spectacular museum! The interior architecture and layout is stunning. The dinosaur exhibit is even MORE stunning! It was quiet when we visited and we couldn't believe the quality and quantity of large dinosaur exhibits. It's totally worth it to bring the whole family and spend a couple of hours discovering each room. Recommend!

    We really enjoyed this museum. Lots of history and so many displays that show the evolution of music and instruments over time. Well worth a visit

    It is a must visit in Brussels, to see Rene Margritte's work which is so ahead of his times.

    He has such creativity and different from other artists. There is no details of his influence though.

    The museum is spacious, and really takes more than 2 hours to enjoy the art work

    Great place to visit. The illusions were entertaining. Thanks to Elias, one of the staff members. He was helpful and enthusiastic. He took plenty of pictures for us and showed us the best way to make the illusions work. 👍
    I would definitely recommend going!

    The catch all name maybe a bit juvenile, but this is an excellent and thoughtful museum. We found the experience easy to navigate, well annotated in 3 languages including English, and light levels only dipped to protect exhibits. There is a good, wide ranging collection of locos and rolling stock, many 'step on' or 'pass through.' The side displays of memorabilia, including models, uniforms and the poignant looping footage of WW2 transportation were all excellent. A great way for any rail enthusiast to spend a couple of hours plus.

    As a source of local heritage and information Train-Word compares well to York. The only room for improvement I could see would be more interaction for younger visitors, although the two hi-vis jacketed primary school trips going around when we were seemed to be enjoying themselves .

    What a brilliant museum, very interesting to look around and for the price is a bargain as it’s jammed packed with so many artefacts. It was also fascinating to learn about Belgium history. Would really recommend.

    Nice museum of Victor Horta's home and studio. You need to book a ticket online. They admit 15 people every 15 minutes so the museum does not get too crowded. Visitors are required to place their belongings, including cell phones in a locker. There was no charge for the locker. I did have some trouble with the locker but the staff assisted me. You walk thru the museum and visit as though you were visiting someone's home but without touching things. It is a self guided tour. The house is on one side and the workshop on another but they connect inside. There are steps and those unable to do stairs would only see one floor. There are staff members through out the museum if you have questions. I had seen it mentioned somewhere but the museum did not any lists of Art Noveau buildings in the area. I did not see until later there is a "walks" option on the website.

    Very nice collection of contemporary art and the visit to Rene Magritte's house was very interesting. This should be coupled with the Museum of Fine Art which has a huge collection of his works

    We came as a family with 2 children under 10 who don't speak French.

    I'd say it's probably a very interesting museum if you speak French or you're older and deep into comics, but it's not worth your time if your kids like a bit of Tintin or Asterix and Obelix etc and think there might be something for them here.

    They did enjoy the library on the ground floor for 15 minutes, which was also peaceful

    (I have left 4 stars so as not to impact the overall rating as that would be unfair)

    Enjoyed the museum. Didn’t know much about his work with the exception of his most famous works, which unfortunately are not in the museum. Very well designed exhibition in chronological order, starting on the third floor, walking down to the first. We went on a Sunday at opening time and there was a big line, but moved quickly. Recommended.

    If you’re after a quiet and quirky mix of history, architecture and design, this place ticks every box. Nestled in a residential neighbourhood away from the buzz of the city centre, you can walk through the Van Buuren’s charming house while reading about each room from a paper booklet. We particularly enjoyed the sculpture maze and the little cinema on the top floor!

    An interesting museum. It takes about an hour and the location is very convenient to the Hotel Amigos. The thing I liked the best was the weather vein. The price is quite reasonable, 10 euros, and six euros for seniors.
