The industrial towns of Sinshiem and Speyer in Germany are home to two extremely impressive auto and technical museums. The collections include numerous cars, motorbikes, scooters, trains, aircraft, ships, submarines, a space shuttle, military hardware and even a chainsaw collection. Housed in vast hangers, with giant aircraft suspended overhead, they are truly amazing. Even though Shelly was initially a little dubious, we spent a couple of hours at both museums and went absolutely mental photographing the collection. Here are a couple of pics of the scooter collection. I will continue to update this post over the next couple of weeks.
Of the two museums Sinshiem was the best in my opinion. The collection was better presented and the auto section was much larger. Both cities are about two hours drive south east of Frankfurt. Click on the heading line to take you through to their website.
