  • I wondered if I’d like this museum as I’m not really a petrol head, but it’s a fantastic journey through the history of the motor car with great exhibits, films and narratives from al over the world.....  more »

  • Enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours, viewing the temporary and permanent exhibitions. We particularly enjoyed the section on car designers, although we would have benefited from a bit more...  more »

  • One of the best museums I have ever seen. Despite the face, that I know nothing about cars, I was really engaged in the excursion, because all the exhibits are interactive. For sure you will enjoy it as well no matter about your knowledge about cars. For children that place is also suitable, because you can touch everything there, so you don't need to worry that they can brake the rules of the museum.
  • We were very impressed by this museum, it extends three floors and you are able to see most cars up close, they're not packed as tightly together as other car museums I have been to. There are large toilets available inside after you pay and enter. You have to leave your bag behind in a locker which takes 1 euro coin, you'll get it back when you unlock it. There was parking nearby, the entrance was wheelchair accessible, I do not remember if they had an elevator, but I'm sure they do, considering everything else was to such great standards. There is also a small cafe and a gift shop.
  • Unbalanced. Good at the early evolution of the car up to the 1940s but then lacking in international scope. Great if you like Fiats. Big gaps in the coverage of more recent times when it is very Italian centred. The good again at post 2000 concepts. If it is one or the other, then go to the Egyptian museum. That one IS truly world class.
  • A car lovers hot spot. A great selection of cars. Design & concept section really interesting. Small cafe with a reasonable variety of light bites, coffee selection average but good prices with friendly & helpful staff. Parking a bit tricky to find but good accessible ramps & lifts for all floors access. Reasonable accessible change facility ( on 2nd floor). Museum shop expensive but I guess they're all s bit like that! A great way to spend an afternoon.
  • The museum calls itself "interactive", but really it's not. On 3 floors there are maybe 4 places where you can stop and do something. Don't sit in a car and don't touch. But the car collection is absolutely amazing and the rooms are designed with great care. They start with carriages and end with very innovative designs from the last 5 years. Museum shop has a great choice of souvenirs, especially for grown ups. Toy cars for kids.
