This is a museum right up my street. A history of transport in Germany that includes cars, trains and aircraft. My only complaint is that we didn't have enough time to visit everything, only the automobiles and trains. I will definitely come back for another visit.

I don't know much about vehicles but I still found this museum really interesting. Honestly I think those who love transports should visit here. Me and my friend had a great time here.

This museum was around the corner from our hotel. We were very glad we went in! A very well laid out collection of all manner of transport...starting with a pair of shoes! Bicycles,cars,huge train engines ...all immaculately restored. Put it on you list!

We came across this gem of a museum by chance and found it fascinating. Lots of very old motorcars and bikes from the late 19th century onwards plus a few steam locomotives. Good bilingual signs. Upstairs there is stuff on aircraft and various practical physical experiments. The O-gauge model railway layout was mesmerising.

A very good collection of forms of transport through the ages, particularly in the 19th & 20th centuries. The exhibits are in well lit halls and well displayed.

Visited with my 3 kids, 8, 5 and 3. We spent 3 hours at the museum, lots to see and do. Very interesting to read about the history of Germany and their transport history. The only thing that was missing was a gift shop, would liked to have bought a souvenier.

This museum is well presented, with sections on cars, motorcycles, trains and flight. The layout is excellent, well set out, the signs all have English translations. There are a couple of rare exhibits that are well worth seeing for them alone. I loved the set up of the mechanic's garage and little additions, such as road signs, petrol signs and... More

Not just for petrol heads this museum - it explains in great detail (and in English) the history of most modes of transport - from bicycle to Aeroplane - however the tram and boat sections where under re-development when we where here. They do have a very large model railway on the top floor and also some original early steam... More

A well presented museum , particularly of road vehicles. The rail section is a little disappointing although the vast model railway on the top floors worth a visit.
