Throughout the years the hall that houses Autoworld today was used for different purposes. During WWI it served the German army as a garage. The Mundaneum, whose origins went back to the end of the 19th century, was installed there in 1920. Its founders were two Belgian lawyers: Paul Otlet and Henri La fontaine.
After WWII the hall was used for various purposes: office of the ministry of economic affairs, storage area for the equipment of the ADEPS and even a resting place for pigeons taking part in competitions! Little by little the building fell into decay until 1984 when it was chosen to house the Mahy Collection.
