What can I say, this just made out children's day. For those with young children this is an absolute must and can keep them occupied for a few hours at least. Ours are 2.5 and 1.5 and they just loved walking around (slowly in some...More

If you enjoy visiting museums, then purchasing a Brussels Card is a must! They are available in 24/48/72 passes. I chose the 48 hour one, and included a 48 hour travel pass, which gives unlimited travel on all buses, trams and Metro. The Pass gives...More

It is about trains, but not just a simple train yard. It was fun for adults, we have spent a good 2 hours looking around and learning a great deal about the last 200 years of locomotion.

If you have been to rail museums before you could be expecting a draughty hall containing a few rusty locos and a brief description of when they were built and which routes they were in. Train World is an object lesson on how a museum...More

The museum is based in the old Schaerbeek station building which is a lovely start to the exhibits. There's also a large new building where most of the full size exhibits are. It was designed by an artist according to the displays there and that...More

The train world is a really nice museum. We visited it with two young children and they also loved it. They can go on the trains which is more fun for them than simply looking at them. There is a treasure hunt which they also...More

I haven't been to York for years, so I'm not familiar with what they have there now but, as has been said, everything is available in English. There were definitely displays aimed at smaller children too. However, if your... More
