Three floors of motoring heaven!

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.

The best place to find all the exclusive models of Volkswagen that you can't find in a random exibithion. Ideal for the true VW fans. Cheap entrance.

My boyfriend and I visited here in September, it was a surprise to me as I love campers. The museum is about 20 mins walk out of the city. There is parking available at the museum. It only sells water as refreshments but there is a mc Donald's only a few metres away if you are peckish or thirsty. The... More

Cars are very nice but I missed some clear english description and a bit of explanation of VW history and development. Yes, i saw the cars but in the end i didnt learn about the brand itself.

All the cars were displayed in a very nice manner. The architecture of the buildings was unique and interesting. One building displayed antique cars and was beautifully done. All the cars were labeled and well maintained.

You are in the city of Wolfsburg so obviously the automobile on show are from VW arsenal, I wasn't amused by the vast collection and the size of the museum itself as i felt we finished the ''sightseeing'' fairly quickly, for people who are VW fans (beetles and vans) it may be highly entertaining, it was very average for my...

An avid VW fan and owner, this is like a trip to Mecca. Everything about this small town is Volkswagen! It was like a dream come true. I have to admit, when I saw the outside of the Auto Museum, I thought it was going to be disappointing, I still thought the same when I got into the reception, we... More
