Very complete and very nice presentation. we spent 2 hours there (an adult and 2 children aged 3 and 5, who had already visited it. Less happy point: the exhibition part of the old locomotives. The room is dark and a little scary for the little ones children. Yet the scenography is beautiful and well studied. Friendly and welcoming staff. This museum is worth a detour, Thank you

Very nice exhibition. I never expected so much effect. 1st museum for my 2 year old and 4 month old son. He loved it. The only downside is the distance that is not respected by some people. But hey they are everywhere and the museum has nothing to do with it because many gels are placed all along the route. I recommend

Great experience for young and old

We became aware of Train World through a flyer in our hotel lobby. The museum has a total of 4 large halls, in which the history of the Belgian railway is shown. We bought a German-speaking audio guide for 2 EUR and it was very worth it. What is told about the respective time is brief and concise at the different stations. I can highly recommend it, especially in bad weather.
