Opening hours & admission fee

Opening hours & admission fee

On regular opening days, visiting our vehicle collection is only possible by a guided tour of approx. 1 to 1.5 hours. Our staff will explain many interesting facts about our museum and the vehicles on display during the tour and are happy to answer your questions.

Since the vehicles in operation are maintained on the exhibition grounds at the same time and railway operations also take place in some areas, it is imperative that our staff accompany visitors for safety reasons. All exhibition areas are accessible at ground level and we endeavour to make access possible for people with limited mobility. As part of the guided tour, the outdoor area and the workshop areas will also be visited. Here, unevenness and soiling of the walkways cannot be ruled out. We therefore recommend that you wear flat and sturdy shoes.
