"Här lever teknikhistorien!"
This museum was created 1996 to 1998 in the old buildings of the mechanical works, named after the city – Köpings Mekaniska Verkstad (KMV). Already in 1926 they began manufacturing gearboxes for AB Volvo. Here they treasure the heritage of some of Sweden’s most devoted automobile historians, Bertil Lindblad and Curt Borgenstam.
Here are famous cars and legendary marques, such as Bugatti, Voisin and Panhard-Levassor as well as immortal classics from Cadillac and Bentley.
There are also a large number of motorcycles, automobilia and items from our technological heritage. They also have a display of a 1920’s workshop with a Volvo ÖV 4 from 1927.
The exhibition also has vehicles on loan from private collectors and enthusiasts so the cars shown will vary.
Special exhibit of Volvo gearboxes is found upstairs.
