The Parc du Cinquantenaire (French for "Park of the Fiftieth Anniversary", pronounced [paʁk dy sɛ̃kɑ̃tnɛʁ]) or Jubelpark (Dutch for "Jubilee Park", pronounced [ˈjybəlpɑr(ə)k]) is a large public, urban park of 30 ha (74 acres) in the easternmost part of the European Quarter in Brussels, Belgium.
Most buildings of the U-shaped complex which dominate the park were commissioned by the Belgian Government under the patronage of King Leopold II for the 1880 National Exhibition commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Belgian Revolution. During successive exhibitions in the same area, more structures were added. The centrepiece memorial arch, known as the Cinquantenaire Arch (French: Arc du Cinquantenaire, Dutch: Triomfboog van het Jubelpark), was erected in 1905, replacing a previous temporary version of the arcade by Gédéon Bordiau. The structures were built in iron, glass and stone, symbolising Belgium's economic and industrial performance. The surrounding 30 ha (74 acres) park esplanade was full of picturesque gardens, ponds and waterfalls. It housed several trade fairs, exhibitions and festivals at the beginning of the century. In 1930, the government decided to reserve the Cinquantenaire for use as a leisure park.

Saw Autoworld on a list of places to visit whilst in Brussels. Having a bit of an interest in weird and wonderful automotive specimens I went to have a look. They have a great selection and great age range of automobiles on display. Quite a few interesting examples of like a "modern car" concept by Italdesign and a amphibious car on the first floor. Highly recommended for automobile and automotive history fans.

Very nice place, cars are well maintained and beautifully collected in this big museum. Are really like this place, even if the ticket is quite pricey. The only bad remark I can make is about the woman working at the tickets' desk. I believe she had anything to do with a university being so surprised that a person of 28 could be still enrolled. She was even denying our badges. If you want to have a good reputation, you should choose more wisely your staff.

Apart from having a huuuuge selection of cars, Autoworld also sports some iconic motorcycles as well. We have visited a seasonal exhibition about American cars, and the atmosphere was amazing. They played matching music and decorated the halls to match the theme. My recommendations!

Fell in love with this place! The exhibition is very well organized. The cars upstairs were by far my favorite! The vibe there is just spot on. Perfect for car lovers and people that want to see something cool and different! Just go!

The Autoworld surprised me in a very good way. It has a huge range of cars, mostly old but new as well. If you visit Bruxelles, seeing Autoworld is a must; it is very unique, you can't find what you'll find there elsewhere.

A really nice walk through the history of cars from the beginning to our days

One of the best car museums i've seen. very well looked after exhibits including some very rare and unusual cars. Laid out over two floors. There is a very good cafe. Well worth a visit. There is car parking close by.

Even if you have only the slightest interest in cars, history or art, you will love this place. If you’re an auto enthusiast and gear head like myself, you will be shocked at the collection. I have never seen so many rare and exceptional cars in one collection or in one place before. Stunning.

A lot of cool cars. From the early 1900's through today. Overall a great collection. I felt like it was missing something though. Maybe a few more cars from the 60's and up. I love European cars so overall I was quite pleased.
Udal Degli Uberti | May 3, 2018
Plenty of wonderful cars and none of them is a SUV... Rare models, sports, luxury, sedans, vans and even a wooden roulotte with interesting insights of Belgian and European mobility industry since its infancy. Worth the visit.

a must see museum for anyone who enjoys automobiles. there're hundreds of original and replicated cars of almost all of the leadig brands in the museum from the beginning of motor vehicles era up to now. the music playing background was also amazing in terms of reflecting the ambiance.

Had a great time her and it was that quite, I almost had the place to myself. Good selection of cars and motorbikes, sadly no special display as it was in the process of being set up. Worth a visit.

Fantastic car musuem. Very large collection of cars from 1890 to present day, from Japanese race cars to classic American muscle. Interesting facts for each car along with engine capacity, power and year of production. You could spend several hours here if you wanted and the €10 price of admission is worth every cent. A little out of the way from Brussels city center but worth the trip.

A place for someone who's crazy over cars of all types. Easily accessed via walking. The walk over was lovely especially on a good day. Spent about 2 hours or so in the museum and there is a military and army museum just next door as well, so it's killing 2 birds with 1 stone.
Nam Simonis | Jun 24, 2018
Bit better than the army museum. A bit less oldish. But still not so muche interaction possible for kids. They can only jump into a formula one, that is cool
Dominic Rajan | Jul 7, 2018
Excellent place to visit. More than a auto museum. Have a very great collection of cars. Wide range of cars from the last century to the latest. Very informative and very Good place of visit for cars lovers and kids.
Lise Eide Risanger | Jun 18, 2018
So many cool cars! I’m not a big fan of cars, but I found this museum both interesting and exciting. They have A LOT of different cars on display from many different decades. I wish there was more information about each of the cars.
Natalia Evchenko | May 31, 2018
Lots of pleasure for all car fans. You can go through the whole history of the car industry from the very first cars (more like bikes) do the modern beautiful cars. It occurs to be a little bit long and boring for kids: this place has not much interactive things for children. Inside there is a relatively expansive restaurant.
Tim Mason | Jul 20, 2018
Excellent collection of cars and automobile-related materials in a very large, well-lit building. They had a Renault exhibit when I was there and it included a lot of Renault items from very old to very recent. The museum also had many non-Renault things as well from the far past to the very recent - passenger cars, trucks, racing cars, etc. There is a restaurant on-site - I didn't try it but it looked good - clean - with a good view of the museum. Prices to enter was very reasonable - around 11 Euros or so, if I recall correctly. Allow a couple of hours to properly go through the museum.
Servaas Schrama | Aug 11, 2018
Nice collection but not as big as I'd hoped. Not museum quality, but a good collection of cars from all ages. It is well situated right in the park. The bistro is, confusingly, only accessible from within the museum, and does not serve any foods after 1400. Staff was great however, the gentleman pointed us to the cafes nearby where we were very happy.

It is a vintage car display. From old chariot to Ferrari everything is there. We really loved it to see so many varieties. If you having interest on car, you must visit. Usually it will take 2 to 3 hours to complete the tour and depending upon your interest, it could be more as well.
Shobha Hebbar | Aug 9, 2018
Highly recommend to visit once. It's been so nice to see old and new generation model cars all together on a single place. You need atleast of 3 hours to collect the minimum details of the museum. Automobile and mechanical engineers are highly recommend to visit once.
Georgikopoulos Manolis | Aug 9, 2018
Amazing. I never thought it was going g to be so good. From the oldest to the newest car is a nice museum to visit even if you are not a car enthusiast. The gift shop has a lot of good options if you likeinuature cars and staff.
