At the Brussels Tram Museum you can find a vast collection of vehicles that have spent their lifetime in the streets of the city, vehicles from a period that spans over a century.
During our opening season you can make a trip with one of our historical vehicles. You can relive the atmosphere of the early 20th century on the Avenue de Tervuren and in the Sonian Forest.
A dedicated Museum line with old buses lets you discover the areas between the Museum and the Place Royale: you will see Cinquantenaire Park, the European quarter, the squares quarter…
Additionally, you can rent our vehicles as well as our museum halls for any kind of event.
