  • One of the most amazing places I have ever been! There is something interesting for literally everyone who visits. The models and restoration works on old cars, trucks, trains and boats are incredible! You also see thousands of science, tech, industry and everyday items that you can not see anywhere outside of the museum. Oh and they have set up small shops with all the items in them that would have been present in the last century! Incredible attention to detail. Plan the whole day there! We went in the early afternoon, stopped only for a short coffee break and still could not see the whole museum, so we will definitely visit again. It's mindblowing!
  • Awesome place, we enjoyed it. You have a great lot to visit, starting with vintage cars and bikes, trams, some railway cars, ships and planes. It's a nice place to see some experiments for kids to learn some physics, and for you to see how engines and cars work. The ticket price is decent, and inside you can find clean restrooms. Our only regret is that we didn't had that much time to finish the whole tour and we skipped the airplane part, maybe next time :). If you plan to visit it fully and don't want to hurry, you should reserve 3 to 4 hours.
