Description

Train world is a unique rail experience that will take you from the very first steam locomotives to high-speed trains! It’s a universe that calls on all the senses to understand the railways in its multiple dimensions. It is an active outing for all ages. Walk among the locomotives, climb aboard 100 year old trains, visit a small railway house and cross a genuine railway bridge. You can even experience what it feels like to drive a train! Train World will exceptionally be completely closed to the public from Monday 14 October to Monday 21 October 2019 and from Monday 16 March to Tuesday 17 March 2020 because of the assembly and dismantling of our exhibition dedicated to Paul Delvaux. 22-10-2019> 15-03-2020 : Exhibition: Paul Delvaux, the man who loved trains Paul Delvaux (1897-1994) developed a magisterial body of work inspired by the world of trains. Integrated into the breathtaking scenography of Train World, the surrealist master’s paintings echo the unique atmosphere of the museum. During this exhibition, we invite you to experience this magical resonance and discover the work of this man passionate about trains and stations. The exhibition layout presents the development of the painter’s work: from the drawings, watercolours and paintings of the 1920s to the monumental works of the 1970s, while also including some personal belongings of the artist. As a supreme distinction, the painter was appointed honorary stationmaster of Louvain-la-Neuve in 1984.
