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!

You don't have to be a great fan of antique cars to appreciate this museum. In fact, unless you actually hate cars, this is a really fun and impressive place. Auto World is comprised of the personal collection of only one man, accumulated over decades. It not only includes gigantic old touring cars, like Rolls Royce, Bentley, and the even more luxurious Hispano-Suiza (the favorite of many old Hollywood silent screen stars). AutoWorld also includes such oddities as the tiny post-war Messerschmidt economy car, which looks like a tiny submarine, and the American Amphicar (the 1950s amphibious car which can be driven into water and converts into a boat, and then driven back on shore). I can't even remember all of the other odd European models, dating back to before World War I. There is also a small section devoted to pre-auto carriages.

Auto World is in a gigantic museum complex in the Brussels suburbs, called Parc du Cinquantenaire. Other attractions there include art and military museums, and a couple of nice little cafes. There is a Metro stop at each side of the park, so it is convenient to visit.

Autoworld has a very good collection of cars, mostly European and American, showing the chronological development of automotive technology. It's fascinating to see how in a century the car went from a simple motorised carriage to the ultramodern racing cars of today. The museum has some of the best examples of how cars developed in Europe and the USA.

This museum contains hundreds of old fancy cars, from beginning of XX century up to the 80's, all in perfect shape and condition. Picturesque park nearby. Really worth visiting

My husband's a car buff so we walked to Autoworld in Centennial Park. It is well represented with French, Belgian (who knew) and mostly European cars from the beginning to nearly the present. The 60's and 70's wing was closed. The cars are well-marked in English, French and Flemish so the visit it easy.

Over 400 classic cars are on display in this vast, hangar-like building in a park in the Eastern reaches of Brussels. From an 1896 three-wheeled car to an early electric, up to and including race cars from the 60s through 90s, many European cars unfamiliar to Americans can be found here.
