The permanent exhibition is thematically divided into three different halls:

  • Urban transport
  • Travel
  • Mobility and technology

Impressive, huge steam locomotives with old wagons stand at the specially built stations and can even be walked on. But things can also be a bit smaller: Other highlights include Benz's first car, Messerschmitt's cabin scooter and BMW's motorcycle, which set the world record in 1935.

Is there a special program for kids?

Yes! A separate children's area offers plenty of fun and action even to the youngest museum visitors.
