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

This museum gives you a look into the history - not only DAF history, but also history of automotive industry. Not just our son, but also grandpa loved it.

The DAF Museum in Eindhoven is well worth a trip if your thing is classic cars. It is well worth the trip even if Eindhoven isn't your destination. DAF cars may not be well known outside Europe, but the DAF story and the clever Variomatic concept is a fascinating part of automotive history. The museum is located where Mr van... More

Unless you are REALLY a Daf fan and can read Dutch I would not recommend this to a casual visitor. It looks small from the outside but is really quite large with extension buildings tacked on to the original. Mostly displays of 70's Daf cars and a larger selection of Daf commercial vehicles. Most of the information on the displays... More

A very neat little museum, particularly suited for tech nerds, car buffs, and nostalgics! We were here for a social event, which worked really good actually!

We had only half the afternoon in Eindhoven and made a last minute decision to visit the museum, we were very pleased that we had, the museum had no visitors at the time and the staff were very helpful and we had our own personal guide around the displays explaining all the relevant displays.I don't imagine that this will happen...
