Owner description: The Verkehrszentrum has adopted a new concept to showcase land transport in the exhibitions in three historic former trade fair halls at the Theresienhöhe facility. Trams, buses, cars, and two-wheelers drive down a road through time to the past and tell the stories of inner-city transport systems, infrastructures and traffic safety. Coaches, fast train locomotives, Pullman cars, and caravans paint a picture of the urge to travel from the pilgrimage to modern camper vans. The Verkehrszentrum breaks new ground with its exhibition concept. It attempts to present mobility in all its complexity.

“Very nice for all tech fans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

It's an annex to the main Deutsches Museum in the city center. This is some 5 km off the center and should be easily accessible by public transport - by car it will be very hard to find a parking space (managed to find an underground carage in a nearby shopping mall).

They have all the great 'big stuff' here like locomotives, train cars, busses, trucks, cars, bikes and so on. In other words it's a museum about moving people around in the modern days.

The oldest items are from the early 1800s but most focus is in the modern transportation, starting from early 1900s with the steam locomotives and early cars. The building is rather new and in good shape and also ALL signs and info posts are available in English (unlike in the main museum).

The museum is divided into three sections (halls) but the 3. hall is closed until May, sadly. But the cars and trains sections were very impressive & interesting to me.

“The best museum I have ever been”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

Deutsches Museum is a large Museum near the city center, near the metro-station. The full ticket costs 8-10 euros and you can visit all the museum floors (they are 4 in total). Every "room" has a differnet theme. Those that excite me more, are the rooms about shipping, paper, music instruments, airplanes, space, cryptography and machines. You need at least 1 hour for seeing normally every floor. If you think, that the ticket is expensice, you should know that its worth. The museum fullfil my expectations. There is also a Deutsches Museum Shop, where you can buy some suvenirs, but it is quite expensive.

“Wonderful Display of Auto Tech”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

The Verkehrszentrum is somewhat difficult to locate, but once found is a gem of a museum. A great collection of not just cars but a variety of transportation vehicles and associated technology. Bikes, motorcycles, buses, trains, safety equipment, signal gear, and more. Some great hands on displays to show how things work.

Really enjoyed this location as we trekked across central and southern Germany's auto museums.

“Transport wing - great exhibits if a little random”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

The transport section of the museum has been outsourced to this new building near the Theresienwiese. It is a short but rewarding walk from the centre of town or is on the bus routes.

The museum is in three large airy halls, the first contains a mix of classic cars (including some very early German designs) and suburban trains, the second has a few more railway locomotives, while the third has some racing cars.

The first hall is certainly the best, the railway section is interesting but covered in a lot more detail by the Nuremberg DB Museum, the third hall is a little disappointing. There is a fine selection of racing cars, including a Ralf Schumacher Williams F1 car, but they are elevated on steps and hard to get a good look at.

Worth a visit for transport fans and probably very popular with children as there is a lot to have a look at.

“Don't Miss if you love Cars and Transport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

This is a GEM of a museum that contains hours of fun stuff to look at, especially if you're a car nut, or a child at heart. This is no mere paltry collection of old cars, but a comprehensive look a German automobilia since literally, the very first car (Benz). The displays go all the way back to travel by foot in the stone age, up through the development of private coaches, on through rail travel, and finally the cars. LOTS OF SURPRISES even for veterans of car museums the world over. EASY TO GET TO! and only steps outside a U-Bahn stop.
