Motoring Museum’s Lighthouse

“ is the biggest and most comprehensive guide to automobile museums worldwide. It lists 1663 museums and collections from 67 countries, where cars, motorcycles, trucks, coaches/buses, fire engines, scale models or automobilia are being displayed.

The criteria for inclusion is simple: it must be open to the public either regularly or by appointment. There has to be a core collection which is not for sale – so those showrooms which advertise themselves as “museums” are not included. On the other hand, several smaller museums where only a handful of motor vehicles are exhibited have been included.

Every guide’s Achilles heel is the frequency of the updates. The guide is maintained by a small team. The team is continuously on the lookout for changes, museum closures, new museum openings and other events. We are trying to be as up-to-date as possible. However, if you spot an error, please make sure to drop us a line. was created by Dr Pál Négyesi, a Hungarian born motoring historian, magazine editor and museum professional. He is one of only a handful of people who wrote a doctoral thesis on automotive museums. Titled “How the Motor Museum Saw the Automobile?”, it charts the change in curatorial practices regarding the display of automobile in German and Austrian museums in the 20th century.”
