A group of us went to see the 'golden dimension' or Fibonacci temporary exhibition. Super. I had visited the main historical exhibition before and it is very good but you need to know Something of the history. The motorsport museum is not so good.

Pretty lame Motorsport museum for such a famous track. Disappointing, expected a lot more. A small collection of old race cars and bikes and memorabilia. Save your money and go to Auto & Technik Museum in Sinsheim, Germany. So much more to see there.

We got a combination ticket which included the auto museum but the display was mediocre and overpriced. Could be much better.
