I love car museums. So after doing the sights of Nuremberg. The Industrial Culture & School museum had some interesting cars on exhibit. On the outskirts of Nuremberg, no problem with my Nuremberg Card which gives you travel and Free entry to most of Nuremberg's attractions. The Tram line 8 to Tafelhalle was an interesting ride through the suburbs. The Tram stops outside the museum which used to be a screw factory.
One floor follows the history of public schooling, with a section on schooling under the Nazis. Downstairs to the main floor, displays cover the postal vehicles from horse wagens to WW 2. One room shows how Nuremberg built sewers and fresh water cleansing. The arrival of railways to Nuremberg featuring a model of Adler the first German locomotive. A railwayman's workshop is frozen in time circa 1900.
There is a row of pre WW1 cars leading to a street of Pubs, Schoolroom, Dentist and a workers flat above the Cycle shop. There is also a room laid out as an engineering works.
As you walk along the main floor there are bicycles and contemporary badges in display cabinets. A few pre WW2 cars and a US army Jeep. Of course there is a section on the development of Hitlers Peoples Car the Volkswagen. A cinema called Noris Cimema (Noris seems to be a famous person from Nuremberg - as 'Noris' bicycles are available all over the city centre).
Post WW2 cars are on show with inventive shapes and construction. Displays of Electric domestic appiances from water hears to televison sets.
Upstairs again and a long roof gallery of all sorts of technical machinery from Motorcycles to Typewriters, video recorders and radios to water pumps. Showing how firefighting was done through the 19 & 20th century.
When I was there in early October, there were just 2 other people visiting. A wonderful place to wander through days gone by.
