Temporary exhibition 17/02/2023 – 10/03/2024: "Animalia"

Animalia is a poetic and scientific journey through the main challenges of our times: threats to the environment, losses of biodiversity and global warming. In this context, trains are an incredible asset towards sustainable mobility. Pierre-Yves Renkin, a renowned Belgian animal sculptor, showcases a series of life-like animal art works in Train World. These sculptures enter into dialogue with our railway collections. Through this poetic and confronting journey, you will discover the causes and challenges of the current biodiversity and climate change crises. What are the dangers and what can be done about it? This exhibition also highlights the efforts of SNCB and Infrabel to reduce the ecological footprint of their activities on the climate and the environment. An exhibition to understand and to act!
