The Salamanca Motor Museum was opened to the public on the 1st of October 2002, as an exhibition, research and reference centre that includes every aspect of automobile history. It was inaugurated by HM the King and Queen of Spain.
This was the first public-access automobile museum located in Spain.
The Museum is based on the Gómez-Planche Collection, with over one hundred vehicles, thousands of pieces, accessories and other automobile-related objects, as well as artefacts donated by private individuals, companies and institutions. The Museum has a remarkable bibliographic archive and also have been ceded a unique collection by the Spanish General Directorate for Traffic.
Rick and Kathy Howe have been to this museum and this is what they have to say about the museum: “Salamanca is a lovely old city in western Spain; truly a not to be missed city with spectacular architecture. While there, we came across an auto museum that was fairly interesting, with a varied collection. The city itself is the reason for visiting Salamanca; it is really beautiful. While there, the auto museum is worthy of your time.”
