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.

I am from Chicago area and we have MSI and I thought that was big. This place is huge. The ticket price is good, the exhibits are good and we really loved it. It is all about science and industry. They have some really cool brick making machine that makes little bricks to show how they are made for real.... More

Amazing place with so many trains, cars, motorcycles, bicy less, and absolute gem of a museum. Not too huge so you can get round ok in 1-2 hours depending if you read up on everything

The museum was very interesting! It was scientifically oriented. I really enjoyed the exhibits on origin of paper, clocks, ceramics and sundials. I kept thinking as I saw all the children at the museum that they are the future scientists and engineers of the world!!

This is a branch of the Deustches Museum, housed in three enormous former market halls. There are lots of vehicles exhibited here, as well as an interesting collection of train carriages -- an an interesting museum-within-the-museum on the development of the postal service. However, there doesn't seem to be an overarching thought behind it; it's basically just a collection of... More

Plenty to see here, worth a visit if you're in the area. Great for kids but without spoiling it for the enthusiast. Plenty of unusual exhibits and all well lit so photography is great even without flash. Information is in German and English.

Not a long walk from the city centre. Plenty to interest most people, and some interactive stuff for kids.

Spent about 1.5-2 hours here and it was interesting looking around. Take note: it is not the same museum or location as the actual Deutsches Museum - this is a separate one focused only on transportation through the years.

Thank Steven H
