Brussels – Part 2 (Museums)

Belgium, Brussels Guide (B): Brussels – Part 2 (Museums)

On the previous post about Brussels, I mentioned about Grand Place and surround. The most well known site in Brussels, which is basically a city square where massive visitors gathered.

This time I can’t think of any better way to show you Brussels than presenting some of the museums in this beautiful city. I know..I know..it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but while in the city, why not have a different peeking rather than only strolling at tourist spots.

Situated in the southern hall of the Cinquantenaire Park or Jubel Park (the easternmost part of Brussels), AutoWorld museum collects 350 vintages European – including Belgian’s – and American automobiles from 1886 to the 1970s. The Belgian automobiles displayed here are the ones produced prior to the Second World War, like Minerva – similar model as a 1928 Bentley – Imperia, Germain and Vivinus. More than 900 cars in the collection, and that makes it as the largest collection in the world. Temporary exhibitions or temporary event sometimes held in the museum. The latest event was about Italian car which ended this January. Open a whole year, from 10am – 6pm. Entrance ticket is variable: ......
