Kroymans Collection, overview

Musee de l'Automobile, Geneva

Geneva, beautifully situated at the south side of Lac Leman, is always worth a trip. It is famous for its sights, narrow streets where you can either shop around in one of Geneva’s uncountable watch and jewellery shops or just sit in a cosy café or bar to watch the busy business people walk by. But between shopping and enjoying cheese fondue you have to visit one of Geneva’s younger attractions: The International Auto Museum.

Musée National de l'Automobile - Collection Schlumpf, France

Ferrari 250 LM, s/n 5975

Italian born brothers Hans and Fritz Schlumpf made their fortune in the textile industry. Fritz was an enthusiastic collector of cars of all sorts and makes, but had a special love for Bugatti. Since 1964, the ever-growing car collection was housed in the Mulhouse factory of the Schlumpf brothers. When the textile industry was in a decline during the 1970's the Schlumpf brothers sold their factories. To save the immense car collection, meanwhile it grew to well over 400 cars, amongst them some 100 Bugatti's, the collection was classified a French historic monument in 1978 and sold to the National Automobile Museum Association in 1978

Musee Automobile de la Sarthe, France

Until 1991the Le Mans museum was housed in what was basically a warehouse within the confines of the racing circuit, with the exhibits displayed in uninspiring rows behind rope barriers. This all changed in that year, with the opening of a new purpose built museum building adjacent to the main entrance to the circuit. The architectural design of  the structure is intended to convey a sense of speed and motion, and the project was a joint venture between the regional council and the Automobile Club de  l'Ouest, organisers of the world famous 24 Hour Race,

Visiting Modena & The Surrounding Region, Italy

For those who have visited Modena regularly over the years, it is relatively easy to find all the points of interest for the motoring enthusiast. However, for those who have no knowledge of the area, perhaps don’t speak Italian, or for whom it may be a one-off trip from the other side of the globe, it could be a daunting experience. No fear, help is at hand!

The Klassix Auto Attraction is situated just west of junction 87 (northbound) or 87B (southbound) on Interstate 95, with the ”totem pole” mounted Chevrolet Corvette clearly visible high above the junction. The exhibitions comprise of mainly classic ”American Iron” including a wide variety of Corvette models that have been produced over the years, sixties and seventies muscle cars, plus a selection of pre-war cars and various racing cars

Boxenstop Museum

Not far from Stuttgart, in the beautiful village Tuebingen, you will find a real little gem - The Boxenstop Museum. It's not only another car museum but a small collection of some of the all-time favourites in automobile history surrounded by normally long lost - and now historic - toys for children. The Boxenstop museum therefore can't be recommended highly enough to those of us, who have grown up with sheet children's toys and who still have such toys - maybe a little bigger and stored in the garage now

The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum

When people talking about American cars they usually think of Detroit being the centre of the American car industry and home of the big names. But this is just a development of the time when mass production and cost efficiency reduced the variety of car manufacturers spread out all over the country to a few remaining names. In the beginning of the last century, the dawn of motoring, numerous independent small companies and individuals designed horseless carriages just like the Eckhart family.

The Simeone Foundation Museum ... one of the most famous race car collections in the world

When arriving from the airport the journey leads to the nearby business park that is home of the rental car parking lots and numerous car dealerships, unimpressive signposts guiding to a brown industrial building.

BMW Museum

The BMW-Museum in Munich right beside the corporate headquarters first opened in 1973. The heritage protected building by the architect Prof. Karl Schwanzer has become one of the town´s landmarks called “Museums-Schüssel” ( “museums bowl” ) and featured the company´s history for about 30 years. In 2002 the lack of exhibition space made a new concept necessary. Whereas other companies decided in the same period the construction of a totally new museum for one or the other reason BMW made the decision to extend the existing building.
