Opened in September 2015, a new attraction awaits you in Brussels: Train World. The National Rail Museum opens its doors at Schaerbeek train station.

Treasures of the world of trains

Train world houses numerous treasures: Belgium's oldest conserved steam engine the "Pays de Waes" or the Type 12 class steam engine that broke a speed record in 1939.

You are also able to view genuine sumptuous royal carriages or climb into the stainless steel carriages of Trans-Europ-Express trains (the predecessor to the TGV train) which travelled Europe back in the days.

Driving simulator

Have you always dreamt of driving a train? Train World puts you in the driving seat in its simulator!

In the cockpit, you can watch the scenery along the railway lines as it changed over the years.

Schools and families

Your children can enjoy an offer that focuses as much on the educational aspect as the fun aspect. They can also play in an original play area.

Events hall

With new audio-visual equipment, Schaerbeek station's magnificent 550m² ticket hall, that dates back to 1913, offers a unique setting for events. It will be equipped with modern audiovisual equipment.
