With impressive life-sized scenes the Verkehrszentrum Transport Museum presents historical and present-day transport and mobility in the three exhibition halls: »Urban Transport«, »Travel« and »Mobility and Technology«.
In exhibition spaces covering a total of 12,000 square metres, you can experience 275 historical trains, cars, motorcycles, bicycles and coaches. They include the Benz-Motorwagen, one of the first working gasoline-powered cars, the first mass-produced motorcycle, the first electric locomotive, the ICE train and the modern e-taxi. Iconic objects from automotive history such as the Audi-Alpensieger and the Auto-Union Typ C will make the visit as memorable for car lovers as for railway buffs or those simply fascinated by the history of travel.
The three historic exhibition halls, now the buildings of the traffic center, were designed by Wilhelm Bertsch in 1907 and opened a year later as exhibition halls. The halls stand for the beginning of the “Messestadt München” and thus for an important part in the social and economic history of the city. However, as can be seen from the reinforced concrete construction in Hall III, they also stand for innovative construction technology around 1900.
