“nice collection of beautiful vintage cars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

a great collection including Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, RR, Volvo, MG and much more. Also a good shop with car models for the collector (and some for playing). Overall a nice visit.

“Autoseum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

This is a wonderful step back in time. All kinds of cars from the last 150 years or more. This was also a wonderful museum to see the history of Harley Davidson Motorcycles. Being my father is a car buff and it is certainly fun to see old cars of many different makes and models, it is definitely a stop to be made in Simrishamn.

“a wonderful surprise in a surprising location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Simrishamn is a small fishing town that gears itself up for tourists in the summer but I had not expected to find such an interesting piece of motoring history on display in a town like this. Over 200 vehicles (cars,including a Rolls Royce once owned by Zsa Zsa Gabor, the odd horse-drawn carriage, light vans, fire trucks, motor cycles, racing cars and more) are well displayed in a purpose-built 'hangar' in a rather unprepossessing industrial area not far from the railway station. It is easy to find; look for a SAAB J35 Draken fighter aircraft is parked by the gate. There is ample free parking.
The couple of hours I spent ambling around, as you generally do in places like this, whizzed by. Some of the English descriptions raise a smile, have been directly translated from the Swedish, but everything you need to know is there.
There is a shop and an interesting display of vintage model aircraft that will take anyone of a certain age back to the days of KielKraft, Frog diesels and Jetex motors.

The toilets and other facilities are spotless as one would expect in Sweden. The restaurant is licensed to sell alcohol, although is does have a limited menu.
Coffee or a soft drink is included in the ticket price of 100SEK (£10)

Staff were friendly and helpful, with the language skills that all Scandinavians possess.
Check out the web site www.autoseum.se - it seems to be only in Swedish - but the inventory of vehicles is at http://www.autoseum.se/fordon_index.html

And finally, I think this museum will appeal not only to the more serious aficionado but to families with only a passing interest in motoring history as well as . If you're in Southern Sweden it's well worth visiting, and when you've done take a stroll through the old parts of Simrishamn and have lunch or dinner down by the harbour.
