Great cars

Not just VWs but you have to pay to get in. Some great cars to look at, just don't touch or get too near!

Don't be put off by the light industrial location. Great range of vehicles and super friendly and helpful staff. Not a huge amount of info but must VW fans will know what they are looking at anyway.

The place has been opened 30 years ago and could use a touch-up. It presents VW's history, concentrating on iconic models like the Beetle, Transporter van and Golf. It's a must see for car enthousiasts, but be sure to visit it before going to the Autostadt so you wouldn't be a bit dissapointed.

As we were making our laps of the Autostadt, we noticed this museum with dozens of car adorning the windows, so we decided to stop by. The museum really bosts nothing special except cars and information. You can spend at least an hour at the Volkswagen Auto Museum if you enjoy cars but it is still perfect for the average... More

Great for the VW enthusiast of course but this museum gives a huge insight into the history and development of the automobile and the automotive industry.

I dropped by here to see all the Volkswagen Beetles and Campers that I miss seeing on the road. Not disappointing at all. If you want to see more cars, you can visit the Autostadt across the Volkswage Arena across the river.

Changing exhibitions are making this museum quiet interesting although it is a bit smaller than other car museums I've been to. The descriptions of the exhibits are a bit sort and could do with some more exhaustive explanation. But otherwise it is really nice, as there are also not only VW cars on display.
