Collection: This is the land transport collection of Munich's gigantic Deutsches Museum of science and technology, covering all forms of land transportation, both private and public. The public transportation collection includes 4 steam locomotives, 3 electric locomotives, 1 steam railcar, 4 EMU cars, 3 passenger carriages, 2 freight wagons, 4 tramcars, 2 buses, and 1 trolleybus. Highlights include an original steam railcar from the Pilatus rack railway, the steepest non-cable railway in the world; the Grand-Ducal Oldenburg State Railway 0-4-0 no. 11 "Landwührden", the first locomotive manufactured by the Krauss company; the Royal Bavarian State Railway class 53/6 4-6-2 no. 3634; and a driving motor car from the prototype ICE high-speed train unit. As well as the public transport exhibits, there are many private cars also on display.

Presentation: The museum occupies the former trade fair halls of Munich, divided into three sections, covering "Traffic and City Transport", "Travel", and "Transport and Technology". All the exhibits are static and labelled in a mixture of German and English. The "Travel" section is historically arranged to cover the development over the years of long-distance land travel, both technologically and socially, while the other two halls are more thematically arranged. The museum is definitely recommended if you are in the region.
