Quite shabby museum compared to Autostadt but nice place to see some old beetles and others. Walked 1 mile from the train station but and it was worth it.

I visited museum after wasting my time at the Autostat. I have to say that this is a place really worth visiting for any car nut or for anyone who has owned a VW. The displays are great and tracks the history of most of the early models of the VW line. Well worth a look.

My husband and I visited before leaving Wolfburg after a day at Autostadt and it was definitely worth spending a few hours there if you like your VWs. If you're into VWs, this is on the list of must-see places for any enthusiast. The cross-selection of cars is vast and covered quite a range of both water and air-cooled. There... More

A really worthwhile place to visit. My husband, being a car enthusiast and engineer loves these places. However, I was surprised that I also really enjoyed it. The car museum was fascinating and the whole 'village' was really well laid out. The highlight was the trip through the factory.

It gets an average score which is completely based on the vehicles on show which are all top class & plenty in abundance. What it lacks as a museum experience is more interaction, lack of use of modern media technology, a very poorly stocked shop (if it could be classed as a shop at all) & even maybe a small... More

Since acquiring a classic VW campervan we've been wanting to visit the Auto Museum in Wolfsburg in order to see some of the other classic VW vehicles that have made the brand so iconic. If travelling to Wolfsburg from Berlin, I would recommend booking train tickets at the earliest opportunity as otherwise they can be very expensive. We booked ahead... More

Well worth a trip for the VW museum and historic cars. Lots of the old aircooled dubs. Very interesting to see. Also some watercooled there too. Only problem is that some signs not in English.

Great selection of iconic cars. Go in the afternoon when the staff seem a little more relaxed regarding how close its possible to get to the cars
