Owner description: 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.

The Verkehrszentrum is somewhat difficult to locate, but once found is a gem of a museum. A great collection of not just cars but a variety of transportation vehicles and associated technology. Bikes, motorcycles, buses, trains, safety equipment, signal gear, and more. Some great hands on displays to show how things work.

Really enjoyed this location as we trekked across central and southern Germany's auto museums.

The transport section of the museum has been outsourced to this new building near the Theresienwiese. It is a short but rewarding walk from the centre of town or is on the bus routes.

The museum is in three large airy halls, the first contains a mix of classic cars (including some very early German designs) and suburban trains, the second has a few more railway locomotives, while the third has some racing cars.

The first hall is certainly the best, the railway section is interesting but covered in a lot more detail by the Nuremberg DB Museum, the third hall is a little disappointing. There is a fine selection of racing cars, including a Ralf Schumacher Williams F1 car, but they are elevated on steps and hard to get a good look at.

Worth a visit for transport fans and probably very popular with children as there is a lot to have a look at.

This is a GEM of a museum that contains hours of fun stuff to look at, especially if you're a car nut, or a child at heart. This is no mere paltry collection of old cars, but a comprehensive look a German automobilia since literally, the very first car (Benz). The displays go all the way back to travel by foot in the stone age, up through the development of private coaches, on through rail travel, and finally the cars. LOTS OF SURPRISES even for veterans of car museums the world over. EASY TO GET TO! and only steps outside a U-Bahn stop.

What a fantastic museum, it is well worth the visit. It is hidden gem with some great examples of a huge range of transport. We visited the main deutsches museum first and revived free tickets to this branch museum. Bonus free and fantastic!

The area is very nice and the museum is good enough to see. You dont need to go to German restaurants but you better go to industrial museum or plants to see in Germany.

If you like old bikes, motorcycles and cars bettr you go to Verkehrszentrum Museum in Munchen. You can take your children with you, they will like it.
