Well this is the one I'd been wanting to visit for something like twenty years. What can you say - it's another collection of cars and planes and stuff. I paid to visit here with my Speyer entry which I think saved me a couple of euros. Two halls, at least 1000 exhibits, I took @ 800 photos so it's... More

Spent a whole afternoon here last Saturday with friends and it truly is a great museum, if you like the above things. The displays could do with a few more translations into English, but that is a minor quible. Great collection & very good value for money.

Something for young and old, plan at least 2 days or come back multiple times. There is an abundance of cars, trains, airplanes, machinery, boats, tanks, guns, historical dioramas, and, and, and. Many hands-on experiences for kids. And if you like it , drive about an hour east to Speyer, where the sister museum has more stuff.

Ok, so traveling with a auto fan husband and a fifteen year old daughter, I thought this might be just a day where we gritted our teeth for our beloved male. However, there was such a variety of displays that we all found something to interest us. All the kids there seemed to love the fact that you could descend... More

Very informative . Make sure you have several hours available to see it all! Movies are great, lots of was memorabilia, the best are the planes. Make sure you visit the sister museum as well, with a mock space shuttle!

This is one of the world's best aviation museums. The other one is in Speyer - a partner museum to Sinsheim. Everything is spectacular: the number of exhibits the ability to walk into many of the planes the installations - very camera friendly and spectacular for the setpiece exhibits the children's adventure playgrounds It's worth doing a day trip to...

There is so much to see in this museum that really you need to spend a whole day or maybe more. It is very impressive with everything from bicycle's to heavy artillery guns and has some working exhibits. Well worth a trip

Huge collection of aircrafts and cars. A no. of tanks, German halftracks and buldozers are also there. You can get inside the Concord, tupulov and many other aircrafts which is a rare thing and you dont get to do it often. The nearest train station is the s bahn atop sinsheim museum arena. If you have visited the speyer museum... More

This is a fascinating place to visit for old and young. It's like being in wonderland. We visited there on a very hot summer day. The air inside halls was not really pleasant, somehow suffocating, it was even worse in the hanging planes. We couldn't step into any one of the planes because of the stench, it was intolerable but... More

Just check out the web site, vast range of trains, boats and planes (and cars, bikes, prams, engines, space craft at Speyer). Imax cinema on site, good lunch and snack restaurant. Plenty of hands on stuff for kids. Great day out at each centre (and it takes a full day) so allow enough time.
