5 museums that I would like to visit

On my travels through Germany I often see signs to museums and places of interest that I would like to visit, but due to time constraints do not actually get round to straight away.

One day rather than driving by I would like to go back and visit these places.

Here are 5 of the more unusual ones that spring to mind:

The Unimog Museum

A musuem about a particular type of 4-wheel-drive vehicle that is known for its off-road qualities.  I first saw one of these vehicles on a camp site near Koblenz and saw the museum from a traffic jam whilst travelling through the black forest.


The Bauspar-Museum

A museum about saving money to buy or build a home.  I see the sign to it at least once a year, but I never seem to be there on a Sunday or public holiday when it is open.  It is located in Wüstenrot, home to one of Germany’s largest mortgage lenders.


The Panzermuseum

I saw a sign to this museum on my first trip to the island of Rügen, it is a museum about the history of tanks since 1917.  Situated just off the A7 motorway north of Hanover, the area is known for its military training areas, parts of which date back to the 19th Century.



On my second visit to Rügen I took a different route and saw signs to this museum around half way on my journey.  It is a museum about vehicles with blue lights on them such as police cars, fire engines, and ambulances, including examples from the GDR and is located near the old inner-German border.


Technik Museum Sinsheim

Another museum that I drive by at least once each year, it is home to one of Air France’s retired Concordes and the Russian equivalent, a second museum in Speyer also houses the Russian version of the space shuttle.  Of course there is a lot more there than just that, but the Concorde is visible from the A6 motorway.


Maybe one summer I should just do a tour of all 5?  Until then, if any of these museums would like to invite me to visit and write about them, please do get in touch!
