I have seen bigger and better, but size is not always synonymous with quality. I thought this museum was great in the sense that you find vehicles that are rare in other museums. It was interesting to get a better insight of Warburg, Dixi and...More

The museum has a strong historical perspective, knitting together the production of Wartburg cars pre war, then through the GDR era to the present day. More than a car museum the history paints its own picture of the changes in 20th century Germany.

The collection of old BMWs and Wartburgs (made in former East Germany) are of historical interest. Some of the information is in English. Worth the visit.

Nice to see all the cars. Even a car with some usage (the bulletholes caused during ww2). Also different motors on display.

As a walking rights advocate and non car owner I went only out of curiosity about cars produced in the East. I was surprised as their stylishness and also at the lack of business acumen that prevented the cars from becoming international successes. The collection...More

Not a vast collection, although they're currently extending the museum in the former Wartburg factory (the new one is down the road and makes Opel cars). Lovely shiny cars from the 1950s and 1960s, especially the camping car (a kind of early estate). One nice...More
