The Museum

There are tours available, but we just walked through the museum. Everything is labeled in English and German. You start by taking an elevator to the top floor and then wind your way down through the double helix shape of the building.

The museum is organized in historical order on one path, with collections such as “helper vehicles” and “celebrity vehicles” on the other. One of the celebrity vehicles was the popemobile. So, a really great collection!

Aside from the cars, there are also artworks sprinkled throughout the museum, along with one room that contained a larger temporary art show. While photos of the art show were not permitted, there were some interesting works, including a large sculpture by Swiss artist Jean Tinguely.

This was a very well done museum and I recommend it.
