A large extension was added to the museum six months ago, with Trabant manufacturing being brought to life once again in the original factory buildings. Here, visitors can also find out why the waiting time for the highly coveted Trabant, nicknamed “the plastic bomber”, was so long in the GDR.
The new space also accommodates a cinema lounge with genuine grandstand seating for the audience. The racing triumphs of the legendary Silver Arrow from the 1920s and 1930s can be experienced in a multimedia presentation.
Inventiveness, Saxon engineering expertise, attention to detail, design at the highest level – visitors can see it all in this exceptional museum with its superb exhibits. The attractive complex of old buildings, which were still used for production as recently as 1990, and elegant, modern new spaces offers an authentic and fascinating insight into the history of car making in the heart of Saxony.
