Now, the Choco Loco exhibition at Train World Museum enables you to explore both worlds until 21 February 2021.

This exquisite cocoa-scented exhibition presents about twenty original chocolate sculptures of railway-related subjects created especially for the exhibition, designed by successful graphic-novel author and Train World scenographer François Schuiten, and made by the chocolate sculptors Peter Teerlinck and Bart Steegmans of Sculpture Events.

These sculptures, inspired by the railway world, resonate with the authentic locomotives and the dazzling decor of Train World.
