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!

“A car lover's dream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

This was the second time I've visited Autoworld and thought perhaps I'd be a little bored going again, but was I ever wrong. The exhibit hall is huge and interesting just by itself. I've never seen it crowded there which is always a plus. The cars tend naturally toward European models some of which I am familiar with and others that are new to me. The age runs from very old to more recent. I especially enjoyed the quirkier cars, which they have many of. This time I took my wife not knowing how interested she might be but was happily surprised that she liked it there as much as I did. If you love cars, you've got to stop here. It's easily worth spending a few hours.

“Amazing collection shame about the lack of affordable refreshments”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Really interesting collection of vehicles from the very origins of the motor car most of which are in superb condition. Information on the exhibits varied from the very good and interesting to non existent. It was interesting to consider that each generation spent a great deal of money on these vehicles at the time and no doubt thought they were the epitome of style whilst we see them today and think, in many cases, how outdated they look. Rather than the pricey, and totally empty, Brasserie it would be more visitor friendly to have a cafe bar where it would be possible to purchase just a coffee or a beer and a small snack. The selection of model cars in the shop was as amazing as the museum itself.

“History of "wheels"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Car fans should visit this show. More than 300 pieces are on display. Layout is not so nice and the information about the vehicles are not detailed. Very large area contains a cafe and a shop with exorbitantly high prices. 100 USD for aMYou could spend a whole afternoon by just taking pictures.

“Car buffs must visit this museum.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

This is a great museum for lovers of antique cars. The majority of antique cars are displayed in one large hall. One can compare automobiles of different manufacturers and see the evolution of each make. This car museum was the best I have ever seen.

“Worth paying a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

For the car lovers and not only this huge spacious car museum it's quite a trigger. There is a big variety of cars but if you re about to believe the small machete at the entrance dont get misslead and think you may find Batman's car in there because there isn't.
