New in 2015: Train World, discover the railways in Brussels
As of September 2015, a new attraction awaits you in Brussels: Train World. The National Rail Museum opens its doors at Schaerbeek train station.
Treasures of the world of trains
Train world will house numerous treasures: Belgium's oldest conserved steam engine the "Pays de Waes" or the Type 12 class steam engine that broke a speed record in 1939.
You will also be able to view genuine sumptuous royal carriages or climb into the stainless steel carriages of Trans-Europ-Express trains (the predecessor to the TGV train) which travelled Europe back in the days.
Have you always dreamt of driving a train? Train World puts you in the driving seat in its simulator!
In the cockpit, you can watch the scenery along the railway lines as it changed over the years.
Schools and families
Your children can enjoy an offer that focuses as much on the educational aspect as the fun aspect. They can also play in an original play area.
