Our museum has been much honoured in the last few months.
First of all, on 16 November in London, Autoworld was nominated for the 2017 Octane Awards in the category “Museum of the Year” alongside other prestigious international museums: the Mullin Museum, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum, the Petersen Museum and the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum. Although it was the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum in Philadelphia (USA) that won the award, Autoworld Brussels is particularly proud of having been nominated among these extraordinary international museums.
The next day there was another recognition at Interclassics-Brussels. This time Autoworld ended up leader of the “Big Five”, the five biggest multi-make vintage car museums in Europe with the Louwman Museum in The Hague (the Netherlands), the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu (UK), the Cité de l’Automobile/collection Schlumpf in Mulhouse (France) and the Museo dell’Automobile in Turin (Italy), brought together for the first time ever under the same banner.
At the beginning of December, with the renovation of the museum entrance and shop, it was an internationally renowned Belgian artist Philippe Boonen, who worked “live” on the creation of a fresco representing a particular vision of the way mobility has developed and evolved: “Big Bang’s Cars”.
And if you want more, Autoworld Brussels will also be in attendance at the Motor Show in January at Brussels Expo with its spectacular promotional car.
