experience the world of transport

This is well worth a visit with vehicles of all types, including locomotives and a penny farthing bicycle you can mount, if you are able.

Handily placed,just around the corner from my hotel.This is an impressive collection of all types of transportation.Of particular interest is the collection of machines made during the lifetime of the GDR,including the Trabant.The joke used to be that there was little crime in that country as robbers had to wait 10 years for a getaway car.An impressive collection with English...

On the ground floor is a selection of locally built cars, and a handful of local railway locomotives, along with models. next floor up is the aircraft gallery and at the very top of the building an O gauge model railway. Probably only really for the enthusiast.

Very good transport museum covering cars, trains, ships and aeroplanes. Very interesting to follow the transport history during the communist period, especially the motor industry and aviation. Also some good big railway engines to see. Take your iPhone to download the app to provide a guide to it.

Although it is not HUGE, we found the museum very well done. Even my girl who is a Designer could appreciate the technology. It is definitely worthwhile

I really enjoyed this attraction with my almost four year old boy. He loves all things transport and this had a lovely cross-section of different types. And then we got to the children's area! Science experiments, model railways, and best of all, a great area with cars and trains that the children could drive around the streets. Complete with traffic... More

As noted in the title this is just an average museum with a scarcity of exhibits in some areas and no match for the other similar venues in the rest of Germany.

We really enjoyed the transport museum with our 2.5 year old. She loved getting on to some of the old coal trains and her favourite part was no doubt on the bobby cars!!! There's a lovely collection of old cars and bikes.
