  • Nice Museum with flair and more! We were very impressed by this museum. Also because of a nice Museum staff "has accompanied us bicycle and Authalle". It's nice that he has repeatedly tells us the beautiful exhibits and chatted a little bit under the covers! Also on the other floors with shipping, Eisenahn, aviation, it was totally nice! You get a stone's throw from the Church of our lady from 8 euro really a lot! Thank you for this beautiful Museum! The only thing is we did with "the public" traveled to have received no Vergünstuigung...

  • This museum is really stuning.Aerial models,sea models..everything is very nice and functinoal. Reserver about 2 hours for coming through this :)
  • Tolles Museum mit vielen original Fahrzeugen.
  • About user traffic and transport. Unfortunately many large objects only replicas - I would have some more original expected. For they are what is beautiful again but also often accessible. Very informative!

  • For young and old, an absolute must, the technique which is to be found here is interesting for everyone. Whether railway, aircraft, boat or model car, everywhere you can discover interesting, the Flight Simulator is an experience for everyone and highly recommended. The children can learn much about the traffic in the game park in the upper floor or just play, there is something for all ages. We will be back, unfortunately the time was far too short to be all alone.

  • Relatively little to see. All a bit... but if you're a railway fan you should go with low expectations into it. The track 1 plant is unfortunately only a few times a week (be sure to look after hours)... There is much interesting rolling stock, but the design is either specifically so kept, how she used or could use urgent refresher. All in all: Nice, but not filling the day.
