“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Blast from the past, well displayed, just a pity there were no English descriptions, but a lovely member of staff did his best to explain it to us, and proceeded to escort us through the whole museum as a private tour guide, very much appreciated, I'm sure we learned much more than we would have by a written explanation. Personal touch is always the best!

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

If you're into cars and trucks, this is for YOU! Loads and loads of them, all beautifully presented and restored. Fill your boots with memorabilia and remember your granny driving that 1960's belt-driven wonder!

“Slightly overrated.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

The DAF is a Dutch motor/car/vehicles company and in this museum you will find many real models (the earliest being from the 40s) which were produced and sold by them. The museum is pretty fascinating (even if you aren't a mechanical engineer or a motor fan), containing many types of vehicles, from military ones to 60s family cars. The greatest annoyance is the fact that there is no explanation or serious guide in English. At the entrance you are given (by the very welcoming and kind staff) a map and a booklet, which explains the greatest innovations to the motors evolution brought by DAF, and which I suggest to read before delving into the museum to get a grasp of what you are seeing.

The place shows the whole history of the evolution of the cars related to DAF cars and trucks. You can see the first automatic gearbox invented in Holland and also the several types of military vehicles made.
