“Fantastic collection.”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

If you have an interest in transportation of any type then this museum and its sister in Speyer are the museums for you. We have never been to such a comprehensive collection, whether it be motorbikes, cars, aircraft, trains, you name it they have it, including some incredibly rare and historically fascinating items. Most exhibits have a description in German and English and many of the aircraft can be accessed for a look inside.
The museum is easily accessible from the motorway and has large free parking lots. As well as the museum there is a 3D cinema which you can pay extra to go into to. There is a choice of films but they are all in German. Plan to spend all day and wear comfy shoes!

“The amazing place for whole family”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

This large technical museum is the best one I have ever seen. We were here already 3 times and will be back again, because there is so many things to see and try. Mainly the aircarft exhibition is very nice and very nice organized - with the slides to go down quickly (don´t forget to take the carpet on your way up). The facilities for the children are very nice - out door and the indoor also. We also like the war musem area - very interesting done. My wife likes the exhibition of the historical clothes. There is the easy acces to museum from the highway and large parking.

“'MUST SEE' if you are into aircraft & autos.”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

This privately funded aviation, auto & military hardware museum is incredible! It is the largest civilian collection I have ever seen and it has the ONLY TU-144(USSR SST) outside of Russia AND a Concord on display that you can go into! The auto collection is amazing also, with one of a kind cars(Maybachs, MB 700 series, F1 race cars, etc). Get there early(opens at 0900?) to avoid lines to get inside the SSTs. Sinsheim is only 110km south of FRA.

“Transportation for all”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

The Automobile and Technology Museum in Sinsheim is the only museum in the world that I know of were you can climb in a Toepolov 144 and a Concorde. Ofcause there is a lot more to see, such as a great collection of MB cars and American cars. But also military vehicles and plaines of all kinds. Take the time, have you lunch in the restaurant and Enyou.
