Owner description: More than 250 vehicles cover the story of the automobile history since its early days. One zone is dedicated to sports and racing cars, while "Belgium at Autoworld" tells the love story between Belgium and the automobile industry. A different themed temporary exhibition is organized every 2-3 months! Discover this museum in the Southern Hall of the Cinquantenaire in Brussels, one of the most beautiful architectural buildings of Belgium. Autoworld, more than a museum!

I was killing time, and popped in to Autoworld for want of anything better to do. I wouldn't call myself a car enthusiast or anything, but it is a subject that I'm interested in.

There are a whole load of old cars on display, and in some ways the exhibition is well presented. Unfortunately, the information available on each machine is very sparse- usually a sentence or two, and sometimes not even that. Worse, some of the information placards are confusingly in the wrong place, seem to refer to a completely different vehicle, or make a reference to a car that isn't there (this car is like the xxxx model, but with such-and-such a difference)!

It took me around one hour to trundle round. Avoid if you have restless kids, unless you can make your own commentary on all this stuff. Avoid if you have just a passing interest. If you're a real enthusiast, you might well like it.

The surrounding park is beautiful, but this place opened before it was ready.

My husband loves car racing so we thought this would be a good place to visit. The collection was very weak and all over the place. The display was not well organized. And overall this place looks like it can use some attention and care.

Nice collection of 450 cars, many of which were not in the best shape, but a few that were really cool. For car lovers only. As the wife of one such autophile, I tagged along. Next time I'd go shopping, but he'd return in a New York minute.

from carriages to modern cars - everything is there! I felt like I am in some old movie :) car fans will enjoy there. one part of the museum is under some kind of construction work and because of that some cars could not be seen.
if you want to take pictures (and who wouldn't!?), you have to pay 2 Euros extra.

For a car enthusiastic it`s one of the most complete Europe auto museum. It`s situated in Parc du Cinquantenaire 11, Brussels, right in city center. The parc it`s very famous and big and you allways can find directions from local persons.

The collections it`s very big, each car has a complete description and be sure you can find rare models; Please view attached pictures - words are useless !

The Museum store it`s also big for a model or book car collector!
