We were in Germany for only 6 days and we travelled to the museum on New Years Eve as the website advertised that the museum is open 365 days of the year and would be open from 9-7pm. When we arrived at 2.30pm there was a sign on the door stating that the museum was closing at 3pm. The two ladies at the front desk would not let us into the museum, even though it was still open. We explained that we would be happy to pay the full entrance fee just for a 30 minute glance around but they still refused to listen or explain why they would not let us in. We were extremely disappointed and the day was wasted.

This was one of the first museums I visited in Germany and I really enjoyed myself. There was so much to see here! Not only are there vehicle and planes on display, there are also trains, old sewing machines, and clothing that was worn many years ago. We easily spent a couple hours here and even walked through a Russian plane that was suspended in the air. That was an experience!

This place has something for everyone. Cars old and new, motor cycles, boats, trains, planes including a Concorde, sewing machines, carriages, military vehicles and uniforms, huge engines, and who knows what else. I doubt you could see it all in three days. There is a big kids area outside and the restaurant is excellent too.

I visited this museum in the afternoon after visiting Speyer, it has an amazing and huge collection of aircraft, cars and trains plus military vehicles, with many rare exhibits. The only 2 supersonic passenger aircraft built, Concorde and the TU-144 greet you from the roof as you arrive and both are fully (except the cockpits) accessible. There are various other aircraft which you can climb about in, and there is a massive car and military collection, including many rare sports cars and F1 cars. There are also really well presented dioramas and mannequins dressed in period clothing to accompany many of the cars. Reasonable entry price, and easily an afternoon's worth of stuff to see.
There is a nice restaurant with decent food, and a large gift shop. As at Speyer, staff were friendly. There is plenty of free parking on site and supermarkets nearby. It is located next to the autobahn so easy to find.

This is the sister museum of Speyer, I recommended if you're more into aircraft Speyer has a larger collection, though Sinsheim has the Concorde/skis of course, the museums are about 45 mins drive apart.

A very large selection of fancy, vintage and modern vehicles though somewhat 'jumbled together'. The exhibition hall where the entrance is, was not that good in our opinion, and you should start your visit in the opposite hall since there are the better car exhibitions and you'll take a long time to see everything. To really appreciate all you need 2 days, but that may be expensive- better keep something to come back again--that's what we will do. The airplanes are amazing. Food in the Bistro is rather poor but eatable
