Some beautifully kept examples of various DAF vehicles from the beginning to modern times It was surprising what a range there was. The museum is very well laid out and you can purchase snacks and drinks in its own cafe The guide we had was excellent and nearly all the people that work there are ex DAF employees A nice... More

We visited in February. We had a really great time exploring this museum as a surprise destination in Eindhoven. It was close to the city center--easily walkable for 3 years+. Inside the museum it was wonderful--totally accessible for strollers and wheelchairs. Little cafe for coffee and a snack (not for lunch)--outside food is allowed and there are picnic areas in...

I loved the truck-pulled bus, kept in beautiful condition. But there were many other wonderful things to see from the history of this great European manufacturer: Cars with DAF's innovative "variomatic" automatic transmission, buses -- many of which, though decades old, remain in reliable service in Africa and elsewhere, and of course trucks from the earliest horse-pulled truck at the...

I visited with my son and we spent about two hours here. It's great to see so many old DAF's. There is a fantastic section where cross sections are cut from engines and gearboxes. All the old vehicles as well as new make it a great visit. They even have the old blacksmith's shop where it all started.

You can find the rich and beautiful history of DAF. Including trucks, cars, motorcycles, and the list goes on. I can guarantee that you will be surprised. We spend 3.5 hours there.

I have given this museum 3 stars because I didn't find it terribly interesting, but then I have been to the excellent Louwen Car Museum near the The Hague which is incredible by comparison. The Daf museum is a nice little museum just outside the city centre of Eindhoven. They have lots of well preserved cars, fire engines and lorries,... More
