In the location's words:

The past, present and future of land transport can be experienced at the Deutsches Museum's Transport Center.

All aboard, please! At the Deutsches Museum's Transport Center, visitors can find out all about getting around on tires, rollers, wheels and runners. From the draisine, the forerunner of the bicycle, to the first gasoline-powered car (Benz patent motor car) and the modern ICE, numerous original exhibits take visitors through the history of land transportation. The three halls on Munich's Theresienhöhe are not just a series of unique exhibits. The contemporary exhibition concept brings the many different aspects of human mobility to life. Divided into the areas of "Urban Traffic", "Travel" and "Mobility and Technology", the economic, political, social and cultural dimensions of transport of yesterday, today and tomorrow are highlighted alongside the technical aspects. The walk-through exhibits make a visit to the transport center an all-round experience - from the truck driver's cab to the railroad mail coach and the carriage simulator, there are many places where you can get on board: All aboard, please!

It's not just the magnificent collection and the way it is presented that promise a unique experience at the Deutsches Museum's Transport Center - the listed exhibition halls themselves are also worth seeing: the architect Wilhelm Bertsch designed the ensemble, which opened in 1908. After the Munich trade fair moved out, the Deutsches Museum took over responsibility for the refurbishment of the buildings in line with their listed status in 2002. Hall III, the first part of the transport center, was opened in 2003. Hall I and Hall II followed three years later. Finally, in 2011, the newly constructed entrance area with adjoining offices, a small lecture hall, visitor foyer, ticket office and store completed the branch.
