  • It's a beautiful Museum, with many great exhibits of transport and transport history. To do this again very interesting special exhibitions are added. In 2017, motorcycles from 50 years of MZ. Deduction, it lacks a cafeteria, unfortunately only olle machines. This would a longer visit Schade guarantee. Really bad but what is the regulation of the Bobycarstrecke according to body size. That borders on discrimination. This is the main event in the Museum for children. Single Kontrolletties want to stop it. There she is again the old GDR regulating anger. Give to the woman do something instead of causing trouble the children at play. Otherwise, I sit down with my 184 cm on the Bobycar and the line drive off.

  • This museum offers something for everyone (technically): a model railroad to the even taxes, a 7, 5 x 45 m large demonstration model railway (time in the Internet to look up), vintage, aircraft models, ship models, and also a few small experiments. At the time, the Museum will be converted, the renovation work should be completed in the spring of 2017.
