  • I didn't expected too much TBH. But this museum really surprised me. Lot of cars, some trains, models. I liked the focus on East Germany which made it interesting and different from other transportation museums in Germany.
  • Fantastic place to see and experience the history of transportation. They also have very good curated extra exhibitions. great place for kids!
  • Great displays, well explained and show the development of transport, plus effectively cover the political historical effects on transport in the former GDR.
  • Fascinating exhibitions, definitely worth spending a few hours there.
  • Neat things to see, but fairly expensive for the small size at the regular price. Worth a visit if it's reduced/with a coupon or so.
