This Museum is in the sleepy town of STAVELOT. The Spa Francorchamps race track is down the road from here a few kilometers. I guess my words of wisdom would be not to expect much. The museum is decent, but it is small and on the grounds of an old Abbey. There are also a few other museums located in upstairs in the Abbey. One of which is a puppet museum. Needless to say I did not visit it.

When my GPS guided me into the Abbey's parking lot... I really thought I was in the wrong place. Because its in the middle of a small city/village - and its in an old bricked building/Abbey.

I have always wanted to visit this small race track museum. My tour guide: Rudi gs/e60/1m? Spa was just a good point for Rudi and I to meet, on our drive to Brussels to go visit the Autoworld. Rudi was careful to preface my tour in not to expect too much of the museum. And he was right! Its a cool museum, but it is very small and its located in the basement(keller) of the Abbey. On the plus side they did have a decent Cafe and that puppet museum might be just the ticket for the Mrs.

One would only need an hour to see this museum. I kind of wanted to roam around the village some. But we were pressed for time. There was also a WWII war memorial for our Allied Forces that liberated the town. I would have liked to stop by that. Its on my List for my next visit to Spa. There is just something special about the Effiel region.

Onto my photos...
