Car and Science Museum in Sinsheim
This museum is massive and has “everything” technique related. It’s the only place where you can see a Tupolev Tu-144 and Concorde next to each other. They also have planes like Messerschmitt Me-109 and 2 Junkers Ju-52. In total they have about 60 airplanes and helicopters.
They have a continuous exhibit of over 300 vintage cars from all eras.
They also have no less than 16 of the legendary Mercedes compressor-cars, among them the S, SS and SSK series from the 1920’s and 1930’s, all of them, in running order.
At Technik Museum Sinsheim they also have one of the largest Maybach collections worldwide!
A few other nice ars they have: American LaFrance, 1908; Auburn 851, 1935; Columbia Electric, 1900; Mercedes 22/40 PS, 1912; Mors, 1898; Porsche 597 Jagdwagen, 1955; Presto 9/30 PS Typ D, 1924.
Rick and Kathy Howe have been to this museum and this is what they have to say about the museum: “Now THIS is a fun museum, with something for everyone. It is indeed a technical museum and not solely an automotive museum. You want to compare the Concorde to its Russian SST counterpart? Step right up. You want tanks and military equipment? This is the place. Lots of fun exhibits, but at its core it is an excellent display of automotive memories, with hundreds of wonderful cars on display along with period accessories and excellent information panels. Outstanding! Located not far from the similar collection at Speyer, which we would also like to visit.”
