“Slightly overrated.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The DAF is a Dutch motor/car/vehicles company and in this museum you will find many real models (the earliest being from the 40s) which were produced and sold by them. The museum is pretty fascinating (even if you aren't a mechanical engineer or a motor fan), containing many types of vehicles, from military ones to 60s family cars. The greatest annoyance is the fact that there is no explanation or serious guide in English. At the entrance you are given (by the very welcoming and kind staff) a map and a booklet, which explains the greatest innovations to the motors evolution brought by DAF, and which I suggest to read before delving into the museum to get a grasp of what you are seeing.

“A must if in Eindhoven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

The place shows the whole history of the evolution of the cars related to DAF cars and trucks. You can see the first automatic gearbox invented in Holland and also the several types of military vehicles made.

“Automotive Heaven - superb displays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

OK, so I'm a Classic car enthusiast and an engineer, but I had no prevous knowledge of DAF cars or vehicles. But keeping an open mind I planned a day trip to Eindhoven from nearby Tilburg and was so pleased I made the effort. The DAF museum is an absolute gem with something for everybody, from the original micro-car in the foyer through to the 'town square' with shop window displays of items from the 70's, to every kind of truck (including racers !) to military vehicles and a display of their engines. Upstairs is the car section with cut away sections and working demonstrations of the Variomatic transmission. A good cafe on the mezanine too, overlooking the displays. 5-Star museum.
