Basics:
Address: Auto & Technik MUSEUM SINSHEIM e.V., Museumsplatz, D-74889 Sinsheim
Web: http://sinsheim.technik-museum.de/
Opening times: Mon-Fri 0900-1800, Sat, Sun and holidays 0900-1900
Admission price: €14 adult, €12 child 6-14, child 5 or younger free.

Visit date: March 2015

Access by public transport: Sinsheim Museum/Arena station is adjacent to the museum compound, served by hourly trains on route S5 Heidelberg-Eppingen and irregular S42 Heilbronn-Sinsheim Hbf. The time from Heidelberg is 38 minutes. There are irregular bus services on route 765 Sinsheim Hbf-Steinsfurt.

Collection: This is primarily a car and vehicle museum, but has a static rail collection including six steam locomotives, three electric locomotives, and two buses. The main highlight is a semi-streamlined Großherzoglich Badische Staatseisenbahnen class 18 Pacific. It is also possible to compare the Swiss and Austrian versions of the "Crocodile" electric locomotive.

Presentation: The museum has a huge collection of road vehicles, aircraft and military vehicles, covering two large exhibition halls and open-air displays. Most rail exhibits are in a side section of one of the exhibition halls, with a Class 52 2-10-0 in military camouflage in the other exhibition hall, in the indoor military vehicle and militaria section. The main group of rail exhibits are somewhat crowded together, and only visible from one side. Labelling is mainly bilingual, although some of the English labels are very abbreviated. Overall this is probably not worth visiting for rail purists, but definitely if you are interested in other forms of transport.
