I really have to say this was a pleasant unexpected surprise. The museum was much more detailed than you might think. Obviously trucks with cars and bikes on display also.

After having read some reviews before going away we were a bit dubious about visiting this museum thank godness we didn't go with the reviews that some people had written. The walk from the centre of Eindhoven was lovely it was nice to be going away from all the crowds. Upon entering the museum you have the opportunity to have... More

Interesting way to spend an hour if your thing is old cars and trucks. The majority of exhibits are explained in Dutch only. One of the staff even opened one of the lorries so we could get in for a look. The cafe is really cheap for a museum which was a surprise but the shop selling souvenirs is crazy... More

I was very disappointed for not finding any English explanations, especially for the very interesting technical exhibits. The museum is lacking "navigational" hints so I for one ended up going chaotically from left to right and up and down. Otherwise very rich in exhibits and history, if you understand Dutch.

I had to try this museum because it is the current number one in the city I live and it has so many positive reviews. But this museum is just not for me. Some reviews said that even if you don't like cars you will like this museum. But not for me. The collection they have is nice but in... More

The DAF's were known for being used by people who did not want to use manual gearshift. - this museum shows the revolutionary idea of the Variomatic gears, and also the famous DAF trucks and busses, and how it all began - the first workshop is there, too. Add a nice 'dafeteria', and a museum shop with lots of books,... More

The DAF museum is very interesting for the passionate about trucks and cars developed by DAF/Eindhoven. You'll see also military vehicles, motors, buy wonderful miniatures, memorablia and learn about about a very particular history from last century's Eindohoven. Tips: visit the web site, we went by car but you can consider bikes, walk from the centre (10') or take a... More
