Owner description: Train World is a showcase for the railways of the past, present and future. We are not just another railway museum; we are more of a train opera. Visit us and spend an unforgettable day in the Train World universe. You will discover the most beautiful and unique pieces from the history of the Belgian railways. We combine the fascinating story of the train throughout the centuries with a look into the future; a combination that has been deliberately applied in every story. You will find us in the Schaerbeek station, one of Belgium’s oldest and most original station buildings. Together with the new museum complex in the form of a sawtooth shape, this location represents a wonderful symbiosis of old and new in the Art Nouveau heart of Schaerbeek.

Went on a weekday morning and spent approx 2 hours there. The museum is very informative and most trains you can actually go on. Mainly focuses on the older trains, up to about 1960 but towards the end of the exhibition there’s a few bits on more recently built trains. Overall worth going.

I took my kids (6 and 8yo) to Train World to introduce them to the history of train travel in Europe as we begin our travels here. What a phenomenal place! We all enjoyed walking through all of the halls. It really is very well done and we spent around 3 hours here wandering through the halls and exploring with our audio devices. I highly recommend this!

Brought my seven year old all the way from Paris for two reasons, to take the high speed train from Paris to Brussels and visit Train World. He is a true train enthusiast. The museum really fulfilled all his dreams. A lot of trains to see and enter, useful information on signal systems and equipment. A lot of work out i to details as the ticket being a train ticket. A very modern museum with a lot of interactivety. And a beautiful café, and building. Really loved all of it. Only think i missed was lockers for luggage.

We had half a day to spend in Brussels and picked up this attraction, which proved to be really great. From 1880 trains to TGV simulation, great experience for both parents and kids :)

We might come back in a few years :)

It's a great museum but you have to take an audio guide with you because there isn't much information written down in the museum itself.
