Mahymobiles

SEE A CENTURY OF AUTOMOBILE HISTORY !When Ghislain Mahy bought his first car in 1944, he had no idea that this 1921 Ford T would be the first car in a collection of more than 1000 vehicles by the year 2000. The first vehicles of the collection were stored for more than half a century in Ghent, at the old “Winter Circus” building. 230 of our mechanical gems were transported to the Brussels “Autoworld” museum in 1986, where they are still on display. The other, approximately 750, vehicles had to wait until 1997 for a new home to be found. This turned out to be the old “Ernaelsteen” factory in Leuze-en-Hainaut, where we are today. The new site is called “Mahymobiles”. This private collection, unique because of the diversity of vehicles included, shows automotive history from it’s humble beginnings at the end of the 19th century to the present day.Amble through the world history of automobiles from 1895 to the present day (300 veteran and vintage vehicles) and gain mechanical knowledge in the educational area. In other areas of Mahymobiles you will discover exceptional collections of miniature cars, historic bicycles & motorcycles, a children’s mini circuit, a gallery dedicated to the evolution of the coach building and a special display on world famous ‘raids’.Come and visit “Mahymobiles” car museum regularly, so you will be able to see for yourself the evolution and continuing expansion.

Not really a museum but a piling up of vintage cars, the Mahy collection is a nice effort and a perfect half-day trip for cars enthusiasts. You will see a lot of long forgotten models and will test your knowledge of old-timers. The price fee, at 7.5€ is a bit hefty though. However, if you love cars, this place will make your day.

Brasserie Troll & Bush Dubuisson

Reviewed By Zosia B - Mons, Belgium

Ate lunch here before taking the brewery tour. Service was leisurely (but this isn't a bad thing). Extensive and varied menu including several child sized options. My husband enjoyed his house lasagne and my tarteflette was the best I've ever had. I'd go back for it alone. The flight of beers was really good too and it was fun to try so many types.
The tour was also really good and included four more samples of beer.

Chateau de Beloeil (Beloeil Castle)

Reviewed By Miriam W - Wales, United Kingdom

It is a gorgeous place to visit. We had to go twice because although we had checked the website the morning we drove there, the chateau was closed as the Princess was getting married there that day. Three coaches of tourists also turned up, one had driven all the way from Bruges! They need to put exceptional closures like that on their website, to save people driving long distances for nothing. But on the second visit, it was a wonderful experience. It only cost €9 to visit the chateau and the parklands, which were extensive. Definitely worth going back for.

Musee de la Vie Rurale

Reviewed By Paul B - Brussels, Belgium

Genuine village farm with all the activities well preserved and include a pharmacy, milk/cheese/butter shop, blacksmith and period farmhouse. All run by volunteers and very well laid out with interesting and original exhibits. We took my two grandsons (8 & 4) who were totally enthralled for a full 2 hours !
They were actually closed when we visited, but they opened up especially for us. Normally it opens 1st May, but a film crew were there making a documentary by chance. In season there is a bar available in the house, plus a larger bar area in the main exhibit area for groups.
It gave us an insight of what life was like in the 1800s and even included the village school and you could see how they lived in the farmhouse with each room carefully laid out.

The Belfry of Tournai

Reviewed By Twinsliders

At only €2 you may as well take a look if passing. It was interesting to learn the history of this tower and belfries in general however all the information is in the first room and after that there is no more. This was disappointing and it would be a vast improvement to have some displays further up so that you are not just looking at an empty room! The steps are steep, narrow and uneven in places but there aren't that many of them so you don't have to be really fit to manage the climb and there are plenty of stops on the way.

Archeosite Et Musee d'Aubechies

Reviewed By Tom_Ottantatre - Zuienkerke, Belgium

This is a parc and museum where a couple of houses were rebuilt as life was in the bronze, iron and roman era in the region. The houses are being occupied by reinactors who really show how to make iron, bronze or how plants were cultivated in that time.
This is a very impressive and well done impression of the past. This is a must to visit.
