“Very enjoyable museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We spent a rainy afternoon here and it was certainly worth the visit. The cut out sections of engines are very smart, and all the vehicles are incredible.
I would have liked a greater selection of miniatures in the shop and some more info in English (some, but not every display has English description) but overall we got plenty of information from the existing ones.
The staff were really helpful too.
Would recommend a visit to anyone interested in engines or classic vehicles.

“nice way to pass an hour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Brillant to see old cars and trucks. My boyfriend is a diesel mechanic and he liked it very much. It is very close to city centre.

“Great museum with a very nice staff members”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I cannot say that I am a car fanatic, but visiting this museum was an unforgettable experience. When entering museum, I was surprised - I did not expect to see so many cars at one museum. There were not only trucks, but also small personal cars from early 60's, funny old police cars and millions of miniature cars. There is also possibility to get in some cars and trucks and experience them from the inside. Also friendly staff members will always be happy to tell you something more about the museum and the history of Daf. After long walking around museum you can sit in a museum's cafe and enjoy your coffee for a reasonable price.

“Great afternoon at DAF museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

As a family of 4 we enjoyed a great few hours at this pleasant and well run museum, and at only 22.00 euros for us all we felt this was very good value for money. There was no end of various vehicle types from throughout recent decades (trucks, cars, bikes, military) and the staff could not have been more friendly (allowing the children to sit in a cab & providing free stickers, posters & a gift pack from the gift shop) All in all would certainly recommend a visit if your staying in the Eindhoven area.
