The Train World offers an interactive experience for the entire family during which visitors can learn not only about the history of particular trains and the Belgium railroads, but also where they can find out more about train technologies that evolved throughout the centuries, discover how trains were used during various historical periods, learn about the hard work of the railway workers, and have a peek into the future.
The museum hosts some real historical treasures of the train world such as Belgium’s oldest steam engine “Pays de Waes” dated to 1842, lavish royal carriages, chic stainless cars of the Trans Europ Express, and magnificent reproduction of La Douce – the fastest steam locomotive of its time.
One of the best aspects of the museum is its interactivity. Kids can climb on the steam engines, open the coil compartments, and pull on a train horn. They can visit carriages and the gatekeepers’ house; stop at a mail car packed with sacks full of letters; and try their strengths as an engineer using the train simulator.
The museum offers also birthday parties and 2-hour long guided tours for kids. Reservation for the tour has to be made at least 3 weeks in advance via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last entry to the museum is at 3:30 pm.

We loved the museum and how interactive it is. It's definitely a place which both adults and kids can enjoy. You should set aside at least 2-3 hours to see it. Keep in mind that the museum stop selling tickets and closes its doors for the new visitors at 3:30 PM! This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.
