Porsche Automuseum Helmut Pfeifhofer

On May 18, 1982, antiques dealer Helmut Pfeifhofer opened Europe’s first private Porsche car museum in Gmünd in Carinthia. It is no coincidence that someone from Gmünd came up with the idea of ​​building such a museum. The dreamy town of Gmünd in Carinthia, the southernmost province of Austria, was the place where Porsche, after moving out of Stuttgart, was able to survive the turmoil of war with its team and machinery after 1944.

Helmut Pfeifhofer remembers:
“This was the time when my Porsche fanaticism began. As a ten-year-old boy, I went to school with some of the designers’ sons, and I was fascinated by Porsche and this fascination has continued to this day.”

In 1965 he bought the first Porsche 356 and painstakingly restored it. This was followed by VW Kübelwagen pretzel windows and others, but mainly Porsche 356. The pride of the collection, which has now grown to 48 vehicles, is a Porsche from the very first Gmündner series, hand-hammered aluminum body – chassis number 356 0020.

In 1976, Helmut Pfeifhofer bought the former court stables of the Counts of Lodron. The “Marhof” was renovated with enormous personal and financial commitment and the befitting abode for the Porsche car museum was created. An archive with a cinema and historical documentation is intended to set the mood for viewing the vehicles. A separate Gmünd department, where the constructions made in Gmünd are exhibited, takes the visitor to the creative period of the Porsche family, during the Gmünden years from 1944 to 1950.

Since the 10th anniversary there has been an agreement between the Porsche factory in Stuttgart and the “Porsche Automuseum Helmut Pfeifhofer” in Gmünd, a so-called MUSEUM STREET Stuttgart-Gmünd was set up. This means that the Porsche Automuseum in Gmünd always has a new SPECIAL EXHIBITION with interesting exhibits from the Porsche factory museum in Stuttgart. In 2001, his son Christoph took over this probably unique private collection and expanded it with rare racing cars that he successfully used in historic races.

Swiss Museum of Transport

Swiss Museum of Transport

The Swiss Museum of Transport opened on 1 July 1959 after two years of construction and quickly became the most visited museum in the country. 1969 saw the addition of the first and, to this day, only large planetarium in Switzerland, as well as the restaurant and office building. Complementing the other exhibition spaces, the Aviation and Space Travel Hall was opened in 1972.

Then between 1979 and 1985, the museum acquired the Hans Erni Museum, the second Rail Transport Hall (replacing the open-air railway area), and the Navigation, Cableways and Tourism Hall. A further expansion came in 1996 with the incorporation of the Filmtheatre cinema.

Marking the museum’s 50th anniversary, 2009 saw the iconic Road Transport Hall inaugurated and the entrance area with conference centre, catering facilities and shop redesigned. Lastly, the Swiss Chocolate Adventure visitor experience (2014) and Media World (2016) now form part of the museum complex.

Musée de l’Auto Mahymobiles

Mahymobiles was opened to visitors on 29th September 2000.

Ghislain Mahy’s collection has two very unusual aspects. The collection is privately owned but, in March 1978, the Mahy family created a charitable foundation in order to prevent dispersion or compulsory sale following the death of a family member.

The second is the collection’s theme. It is probably unique worldwide in containing at least one example of every important aspect of automobile development. The Mahy collection is one of the largest in the world and includes more than nine hundred and fifty cars, sixty motorcycles, a collection of bicycles, children’s cars, some horse-drawn carriages, and sleighs.

Mahymobiles shows automotive history from its humble beginnings at the end of the 19th century to the present day.

Museum of the 24 Hours of Le Mans

Museum of the 24 Hours of Le Mans

After moving to Le Mans, Amédée Bollée built the first “modern” car in 1873. The success of the “Obéissante” was universal and sealed the destiny of Sarthe and Le Mans. From 1923 onwards, with the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Le Mans became a place that was synonymous with cars. The Automobile Club Ouest, the department and local collectors therefore created the car museum in 1961. At first located within the circuit, near the village, it had various updates over the years and moved in 1991 near to the main entrance to the circuit.

The car has revolutionised our society for more than a century and to preserve this evolution, the Automobile Club de l’Ouest created the 24 Hours of Le Mans Museum, a setting for the great adventure in road mobility.
