  • Amazing lokation! The exhibit includes an old 15.000 KW Diesel engine which still runs multiple times a year. There are also other engines and items concerning B&W and MAN. The whole exhibit is free and tours are available. Absolute must!
  • This was a great little museum and it was free entry. My father worked with large, low speed engines and it was great to see an example. I myself work with medium speed engines so it was great to see the evolution and history of a similar technology. There were lots of interactive models as well, which are great to illustrate concepts and entertain kids. I really thought this was fun and can't believe it was free.
