How have people transported themselves for the last 200 years? You’ll find out at this intriguing museum, a spin-off of the Deutsches Museum that focuses on mobility technology, travel, and urban transport. Here you can see “Puffing Billy,” an early steam-engine locomotive from 1814, step into a passenger train from the late 19th century, and peer inside a modern high-speed ICE train. There’s a wonderful collection of horse-drawn carriages, and some of the bicycles on display are 150 years old. And then there’s the superlative collection of historic automobiles, including Daimlers, Opels, Mercedes, Tatas, Citroens and Bugattis. All these vehicles are exhibited in three historic exhibition halls dating from 1908, which have been restored to their original appearance.
