Train World


Show/hide the menu


Train World, the showcase for the railways of yesterday, today and tomorrow, is a must-see tourist attraction in Brussels. The site is located a few minutes by train from Brussels Central station (near the Grand Place). Here you will be able to admire the loveliest pieces from the collection of historical locomotives and carriages from the Belgian railways, but it will also illustrate the significant role of the train in the mobility of today and in future. Train World is more than a museum: it will be an experience centre. An original scenography – designed by artist François Schuiten – will provide an experience in which the audience can look, listen, touch and be surprised by scintillating stories from the world of trains. The site comprises the renovated Schaerbeek station, where the ticket office is located, and a new 8,000 m² building. A restaurant and a book & gift shop in the station completes the offering. It will also be possible to have a picnic: a restored carriage will be available in the transit area from the station to the new building for this purpose.
