The museum

One of the most comprehensive and diverse collections in Europe, if not the world - the Nationales Automuseum The Loh Collection – displays around 150 unique automobiles from 135 years of automotive history. Vehicles from more than 50 manufacturer brands can be seen, from rare exotics to cultural icons that sold in their millions.

The Nationales Automuseum puts significant automobiles in the context of their respective eras. The museum tells the story of the engineers and designers, the proud owners and the brave racing drivers. The museum tells the story behind the history.

Permanent exhibition

More than 150 exhibits, more than 150 exciting stories. Knowingly told and stylishly presented within creatively historic museum walls. With exacting attention to detail, the Nationales Automuseum presents the history of the automobile, in all its diversity, with the good, the bad and the quirky together. We have defined different subject areas, we show the most beautiful classics and explain the heroic failures, the ideas that caught the public imagination and those that history has forgotten. We have a cinema, an engine gallery, a technical centre and our special exhibitions change regularly to maintain the museum’s freshness. The Nationales Automuseum conveys knowledge, inspires the car enthusiasts and entertains the whole family.

Special exhibition

In addition to the extensive permanent exhibition, seasonally changing special exhibitions focusing on specific themes are also an integral part of the Nationales Automuseum. The “100 Years of the 24 Hours of Le Mans – the Myth, the Heroes, the Cars” exhibition kicked things off in 2023/2024. In the subsequent exhibition “Ferrari – Masterpieces for the racetrack and road”, the museum displays a globally unique compilation of high-class Ferrari vehicles. The valuable exhibits, including some unique pieces, range from the Mille Miglia Barchetta from the early 1950s to the most successful racing Ferrari of all, the F1-2004 from Michael Schumacher, to the most recent hypercar LaFerrari from 2013.

Movie theatre

The "Capitol" in Art Deco style offers comfortable space for around 50 people. With stylish, classic seating and an original projector, we have integrated it into the old industrial hall.
