  • Overall, I've seen the two Deutsches museums: the main one in the centre and this one. Honestly I much more preferred this one and I encourage all foreigners to choose this one as well. Here everything is translated from German and the whole exhibition is very interesting. I am a grown man and it was a true experience seeing all these historical cars and trains in one place. I think you can see it all in the span of 1,5 hours if you don't read everything.
  • It's a nice spacious well lit museum, not only vehicles but everything required to maintain or move them, like train signals or relay switches. Go inside an old train to see what it looks like or look at the moving parts inside a car engine. It really is for people of all ages and can do it either in 40 minutes or take 4 hours to read up on everything. A very nice children's area with blocks and a slide to go from second to first!!
