About
The Automuseum PROTOTYP presents the fascination of motorsport in a very emotional way. Around 45 beautifully shaped sports and racing cars are presented as well as the history of the legendary drivers and the ingenious constructors of these cars. At the cafe of the museum you can have a refreshing break before you discover the cinema of the museum or the driving simulator – a real Porsche 356. The ratio of the number of visitors to the exhibition space as well as the presentation of the exhibits and a solid hygiene concept offer optimal conditions for a relaxed cultural experience even under Corona editions.

Stylish museum
Sep 2021 • Family
We visited on a Sunday, & found it fairly quiet. The building itself seems fairly new, and there’s several levels here, so don’t forget to look in the lower levels before you leave!
The simulator is good (perhaps too accurate, as I struggled to get out of the mud!) though you’ll need to queue at busy times. Most displays are in German, though there was enough English for me to appreciate the exhibits.
A good way to spend 1-2 hours.

Nice but small
Aug 2021
A nice experience but a lot smaller than we had expected. The building and the interior is tastefully decorated and supplements the prototypes well. We spend about and hour or so here and we enjoyed it.

For VW and Porsche fans
Aug 2021
For VW and Porsche fans, this is a must to visit. A lot of great history made this also interesting for me. There are other things there, but I expected it to be more for all German brands.

Good for car lovers
Sep 2020
Worth a visit for people interested in German and vintage cars, and the history of automobiles. The museum is medium-sized, contains various cars mostly German. I would have loved to see a greater variety of cars such as Japanese, Italian and french.

It took us around 1.5 hours to finish the exhibition.

Overall, would recommend for a rainy day in Hamburg.

A must visit for vintage car lovers
Aug 2020 • Solo
A nice building with very well thought-out displays, friendly staff, a reasonably-priced gift shop (that's refreshing!) and a small area for coffee and snacks.
Not just a collection of beautiful cars (mostly Porsche and VW) but also cool memorabilia!
Just the right amount of people, not crowded at all. Comfortably seen in 2 hours.
Definitely worth the price and highly recommended!
Already mentioned it to my friends.
PS: simulator is nice too!

A Big Let Down
Dec 2019
Firstly, I wouldn't even call this is a museum and its more of a showroom for a few exotic cars. There were probably 25-30 cars spread over 2 floors of a building and a basement for pictures and memorabilia. Considering that I paid only 15 euros for miniatur wonderland, the 14.5 euros charge for this was quite steep and definitely not worth it. The only consolation was Michael Schumacher's Jordan F1.

Petrolhead heaven
Dec 2019
The small Prototyp motor museum is excellent for we petrolheads who can change a big end bearing or who understand coefficient of drag. Cars, racing history, trophies and films tell the story.

Most of the exhibits are Volkswagen or Porsche, and they give an important insight into the early-days development of their vehicles. There is an important display of wind-tunnel practice in the basement. There is no mention of women in motoring (not even the mums whose housekeeping was diverted into the family's KdF savings tin). But children will love the museum.

As this is a private museum, it does not close on Mondays (rare for Germany). The gift shop is excellent, with a big choice of low-priced souvenirs. Good cafe and toilets, but the coatrack is insecure and there are no coin-operated lockers. The location is 10-minutes walk - 700 metres - from the Markthalle exit of Steinstrasse U-bahn station. It is very close to the international maritime museum.

Surprisingly enjoyable

Lots of fantastic cars and prototype s to look at. Very informative. Reading the history behind the cars and the drivers very interesting (surprised as this is not my sort of thing). Not expensive to visit.

Once in a lifetime - dreams come true.
Oct 2019
There were many prototype sport cars, most Porshe's, VW's, Audi's and one motorbike. There is an awesome, but hard to drive Porshe simulator. Very well spent time. Especially for enthusiasts.
