This massive museum's holdings are drawn primarily from the motor enthusiast Ghislain Mahy’s collection of 800 vehicles, which were acquired over a period of 40 years; more than 250 of those are on display here. The cars include outstanding models from familiar brands like Bentley and Daimler, Formula 1 monsters, and many obscurities, such as a Delahaye fire engine from 1907 and a Leon Bollee Voiturette from 1886. The museum also has the world’s largest collection of Belgian cars on display. And in a nod to the pre-auto past, there's an exhibit of glamorous carriages, drawn from the Royal Museum of Art and History’s collections.
