The Car Museum
The Car Museum shows the car development from the end of the 19th century to the present day and contains one of Europe's finest car collections. Right now there are about sixty veteran and classic cars in the hall, including the Mercedes 540K from 1936 which was owned by Prince Gustaf Adolf, who was our king's father, and the Cadillac V8 from 1939 which was owned by Gustav V and named the King's Curve.
Other unique cars in the collection are Mercedes 300 SL "Måsvingen" from 1955, Mercedes 290A from 1934, Cadillac V16 from 1931 ordered by Ivar Kreuger, Horch 853 from 1936, RR Silver Ghost from 1921, Hertel from 1898, Clement Panhard from 1898 and Austin Ulster 1931.
About fifty models of veteran aircraft hang from the ceiling, the largest of which, the B17 Flying Fortress from 1942, measures 3.2 meters between the wingtips. A few hundred more model cars and accessories for vintage cars can be viewed. The environment is complemented by a large number of exciting enamel signs and beautiful old petrol pumps.
Technical Museum - NOTE: Closed due to renovation
The trolley lid contains a jukebox collection that is Europe's largest. Here, the technical development from positive, music boxes, phonographs and gramophones up to the time of the jukeboxes is shown. The exhibition shows jukeboxes from the periods Antique Age, Silver Age and the colorful Golden Age.
