  • We went mid-November, attracted to the exhibit on the end of the Belgian tramways in Russia. The parking is easy. We recommend that you take the audio guide (included in the admission price); We had not taken them at the beginning but the explanatory signs seemed us a little low (sufficient however if you are with children and want to just explain two or three things) so have asked for them. Audio-guide comments are not too long or too technical but draw attention to details that you don't see at first glance and put the subject in its historical context. The hangar where the visit is freezing, we recommend gloves and big socks. That said, despite the cold (and not be "equipped" to these temperatures), we stayed much longer than expected, so it was interesting. Can be mounted in some buses and trams and is very fun to compare with what there is still now (ex: some commercials, rules for travellers) pictures compare Liège before the development of the car and now... and it is not so easy to recognize places where you spend yet often! The big downside to my taste, is the lack of organisation of the visit. There is no arrow on the ground so we walk as we think but do not necessarily follow a (time) order logic. Inexplicably, the mid, lies in an exhibition "5000 years of history on the wheel", certainly timely but oddly installed between buses and therefore cutting the visit. Next door, a few signs on soft travel modes (especially the bike). A "smart" bike is also placed there: we pedal and using the Bell change city... very informative to compare traffic conditions in different countries! These two exhibitions of course have their place in a Museum of transport but should, I think, be better separated from the rest of the tour on the buses and trams. Finally, by email, it was indicated that the visit lasted about an hour... plan rather two or three with audio guides, or even more if you are an expert and want to watch the windows and mechanical objects all at home. We had planned only an hour and a half and finally missed the part on the Belgian in Russia trams because it lies at the end of visit and the Museum closed...

  • Friendly English speaking staff and detailed audio guide in English. The exhibits are well kept and many of them can be boarded and played with. Only a small museum though.  more »
  • I've been there & we can say it was interesting! Even very interesting! If you want to learn more about the bus, go!
