The museum has reopened on 5 March 2020, following a six week temporary closure due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
A number of health and safety measures still apply, such as distancing rules, limiting visitor numbers and wearing of suitable face masks.
The opening hours are back to normal but all events for May 2020, and probably June, are cancelled or postponed.
Thank you for your support during these difficult times.
The German region that today forms the Free State of Saxony is renowned for being on the forefront technonlogical development for well more than two hundred years. One of the most important industries is the motoring industry and it already has been for at least a century. Our museum is dedicated to preserve, display and explain this rich heritage, concentrating on car, motorbike and bicycle manufacturers and their respective products.
Over 200 exhibits of more than 40 diffent regional companies are permanentely on display. A special focus is on almost forgotten marques an on prototypes. But also cars and bikes of well-known large scale producers such as DKW, MZ, Wanderer or Auto Union are shown, including racing specials. Parts of original assembly lines, a collection of stationary engines and contemporary illustrations bring the Saxon motoring heritage alive. Temporary exhibitions as well as various events highlight different aspects of the innovative industry’s past and present.
