General information

The museum’s housing treasures of the history of the motor car, thanks to Ghislain Mahy’s and his family’s gamble, and the gentle but uncontested force of persuasion of a prince who later became King Albert II. Autoworld is a highly-colorful environment adapted for teaching purposes and created to continue evolving on a non-stop basis.

Autoworld is a private museum which rents this building from the community. Managed by a great team and a motivated board of directors it is open almost 365 days a year. It is also the theater of numerous prestigious events not all necessarily linked to the motor car.

They have around 1000 cars of which a “smaller” part is displayed at Autoworld Brussels. They are also showing about 300 cars at Musée de l’Auto Mahymobiles | Mahymobiles Car Museum.

Marcel Thiry did the same thing with motorbikes as Ghislain Mahy did with cars. During his career as a garage owner in Habay in the province of Luxembourg he collected damaged bikes, which he restored with patience and devotion. In our faithful reproduction of a “Belle Époque” workshop you can see some of the most beautiful machines in his collection. And of course, lots of other Belgian and foreign motorbikes are on show throughout the museum.

They also have some horse drawn carriages displayed.
