Lovely museum if you like Urban rail
Aug 2019
Great museum if you're into Trams. lots to see here. also some old buses too. I've been living in Brussels for 2 years and use the trams everyday so was very interesting for me. Some of the trams still in use today should probably be in here! Not sure which days but they do a 'Ride in a tram from the Museum' on certain days of the year. The tram from the museum actually goes out and travels around some of the actual tram network in the area near the museum.

Brilliant transport museum in beautiful part of Brussels
Sep 2019
This museum is one of the great transport museums and should be seen by anyone interested in the history and development of trams and buses in Brussels (and if you are not, you jolly well should be). On Sundays during the summer months they organise a four-hour tour of the city by classic tram, much like the one in the picture. I found it absolutely fascinating, and learnt an enormous amount about the city and its history. The only thing I would say is that there were a number of small children on the tour I was on, and I don't think it is really suitable for younger children. Also, the commentary is either in French or Flemish, depending on when you go, so an understanding of one of these languages is useful. But the guide on my tour spoke good English as well. The Museum itself has a fascinating collection of trams and buses and is well documented in French, Flemish and English. Well worth a visit.

An unique discovering of Brussels in a tram dated '35
Jul 2019 • Friends
Very well organised tram ride. Takes about 4 hours including a dinner at the train museum along the route.
Very knowledgeable guide with nice stories going way beyond dates and names.
Due to construction our route had to be changed which made the trip longer than anticipated. The restaurant was understaffed during our trip, I assume this is just an one off. Guide is live and 1 language only. Their web-site indicates this, although it was not clear to me when making the reservation.

Brilliant
May 2019 • Friends
What a brilliant place. The exhibition of trams is excellent - well detailed and a vast number of exhibits mostly trams but a few buses. The quality is fantastic they must spend hours polishing the exhibits they are imaculate. The staff wre really friendly. An excellent bookshop but most books not in English. The best part of this museum were the rides on heritage trams. 3 routes used by usual vehicles but the heritage trams tucked inbetween and what a joy all 3 routes were. Not 5 minute rides but good 15-30 minute rides in awesome trams. People stare and wave in amasement. A great sight. The guys operating the trams are a real delight - so enthusiastic. For a transport entuhusiast this is a must. The price of entry includes unlimited rides !!!
Awesome

Tram rides and stationary trams
May 2019 • Couples
This museum (technically called the Museum of Urban Transport) is along Avenue Tervuren and contains numerous tram cars from various periods since the first tram was introduced in Belgium. Many of them you can walk inside of. At certain times of day you can take a (round-trip) ride in an old tram; the time table is on their website. The ride to Tervuren Station is particularly pretty when the trees are green (i.e., not in winter). There's a restroom and gift shop inside, though no cafe.

Worth the travelling.
Jul 2018 • Couples
The tram museum is a bit 'out of town' but worth the trip, especially for public transport fans. wide selection of very very well looked after trams from early horse drawn, to relatively modern and a few on track machines and other interesting vehicles. all indoors and plenty available to climb aboard and have a look round.

Refreshments are thin on the ground, snacks (crisps and bottles) available from the entrance booth only when we visited.

The trip out on a historic tram... Was excellent and great value for money at around 40 minutes all in ! Scenic, interesting and quite romantic. Probably not as much fun in the winter, but we visited in the summer.

Trams in the Woods
Sep 2018
Travelling on the old trams to Tervuren through the beech woods to the East of Brussels was delightful, and then being able on the same ticket to return and use a different tram past Montgomery to the Cinquantenaire was the icing on the cake. Conversation with bilingual and maybe trilingual enthusiastic Drivers and Guards was entertaining - one had his daughter and grand daughter on board and that was just plain fun. The visit combined discovering the transport system in the museum, but allowed for moments to walk in woods and parks. Well worth it.

Best in town!
Aug 2018 • Family
Nice but “great” museum, not far from the city center. You can reach it by metro+tram quite easily.
The museum shows old trams (from 19th century on) and buses, plus some taxis and vans. Is it possible to jump on some coaches and experience the old-fashioned way of travelling. You can also see a lot of tram and bus tables, miniatures, pictures. There is also a coach of the future Bxl metro train, coming in few years.
Then, with the same museum ticket, you can travel by tram or by bus along three/four different routes in town: Tervuren, Stockel or Montgomery by old trams, the city center by an old light yellow bus. All the proposal are interesting and funny and deserve a tour. Each route lasts 1h max.
The museum staff (mostly volunteers) is smiling, efficient and very patient with the children: bathroom are clean, sometimes (not the last time I’ve been there) is it also possible to drink a beer in the small bar corner inside the building.
In a nutshell, this experience is highly recommended! Bravo!

Visit on a weekend, not Wednesdays
Jul 2018 • Couples
Limited opening hours meant we had to visit on a Wednesday when none of the trams were operating so no rides in the park. It is a brilliant collection if you like trams, exceptional exhibits and you can enter many of them. Half the collection is crammed tightly into one hall which meant my wife in her wheelchair could not access them. To be fair, the ticket attendant explained this to me fully in French before taking my money. We could only visit half the exhibits but had to pay full price and we stayed only an hour. I would really recomend that you come only on a day when the historic trams are operating. We had the whole museum to ourself most of our visit.

Excellent trip
Jul 2018 • Couples
A fine collection of old trams and associated items such as engineering and support vehicles. There are rides available in some of the historic vehicles at the weekend. This museum is supported and run by volunteers who obviously work very hard to preserve the heritage of the Brussels public transport system. Unfortunately we had only a short time to spend and an hour and a half was not enough to do justice to all that was on display. We hope that we will have the chance to return one day.
