  • Plateful for those who like history, antiques and cars. What caught my attention was the amount of cars of the 20. Two floors of a huge Pavilion full of cars. Worth the visit because the Museum is located in the Parc du Cinquantenaire, so you can visit both on the same day. Admission is free. Be sure to stop by the gift shop. Impossible to get out without buying.

  • It is really an impressive collection of well-kept cars that are to be seen in Autoworld. The collection is in two stocks and is excellently illustrating the evolution of the car industry for more than 100 years. The museum also has a café with an impressive selection of beers. Hop on, hop off sightseeing buses have a nearby stop.
  • Good place if you are lover of Ferrari. They have good collection of that. Adequate collection of random old cars. However, there aren't expensive cars as Bugatti or Lamborghini. If you are car enthusiast wishing to visit, don't keep too high expectation.
  • Of the nicest museums of the kind. One of the richest Ferrari collections (maybe more than 40 or 50 models of all times). Excellent collection of older cars as well as motorbikes, fire engines etc.
  • If cars is your thing then there is no doubt what to do in Brussels! Autoworld has an amazing collection of vintage cars from the beginning to ultimate racing. There is more than 250 cars to look at as well as models and concepts. The museum cater for both adults and children and it will take you an hour to just walk around the museum in a normal pace. If you get tired then they have a brasserie with both food and drinks. You will find an extensive collection of models in the gift shop if you want to take something with you home. A must see if you like cars
  • Very cool. Excellent display of the evolution of the automobile industry starting from 1911 all the way to present day. Cars from the USA to Germany, Ford to BMW. Mercedez AMG showcase for the month of Sep. Impressive collection. I visited on a weekday afternoon, and was one of no more than 3 visitors in attendance. Very quiet. Nonetheless, an enjoyable experience for any car lover.
