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 well set up - takes you back in time.. quite depressing but only because it's so real.. The place is very well kept, demonstrations and presentations quite impressive. Well done to whoever is keeping this museum in the state it is each time I revisit!

with many real models (old one) presented like aircraft/planes, ship, machinery things, time-keeping/clock, etc. you should well plan the time allocated to this place, maybe at least half a day, and make sure you're well trained to walk a lot within this huge place. Enjoy!

Very huge museum. There is so much to see. You can't get to know everything in one day. During our visit the museum wasn't too crowded.

Maybe my expectations were too high for the DM. It is an interesting museum, you can spend easily three hours there, but we did not leave being excited with what we saw. We have visited science museum in London and Oslo (amazing) and various other similar museums around the world. Despite all that, I think it is a must to... More

It's billed as a transportation museum, but to me the development of the automotive industry in Europe was the central focus. The are a few trains and a fair number of bicycles, but the car collection is unbelievable. Numerous three wheeled cars from all over Europe, limited edition cars from the turn of the last century. If you love cars,... More

We actually went here by mistake as we were trying to go to another museum. What happy chance. This was a lovely museum that covered all modes of transport with some great exhibits of all sorts. Some of the practical exhibits showing how parts of vehicles work were excellent. If you have children that are interested in transport then this... More

Very interesting and fascinating museum for young (and old) boys. There are lots of motorbikes, cars, buses, trucks, trams and trains from the whole 20th century. Lots of fun for kids and andults as well as fascinating lesson of engineering history
