Photos Auto & Technik Museum Sinsheim

The Sinsheim Auto & Technik Museum is famous for possessing both the Concorde and the Tupolev Tu-144. Both supersonic aircraft are positioned on the roof of the museum and can be entered by museum visitors, offering a rare photo opportunity. The 300 vintage cars make an impressive collection bud lack some beauties from the East. The military section makes up for this with a large number of Soviet Aircraft, Tanks and other equipment.

The Tu-144 is the reason that brought us to Sinsheim, we had already seen one in Monino where we did not have the change to look inside. Besides the Tupolev Tu-144 is there also an Ilyushin Il-14P displayed as walk-in aircraft. Other Eastern Bloc aircraft on display are the Tupolev Tu-134, Sukhoi Su-22, Aero L-39 Albatros, MiG-23, MiG-15, Antonov An-2, Cmelak Let Z-37 and a Let L-13 Blanik. The military exposition includes three T-34 tanks a T-55, a T-72, a Su-100 plus BTR-152, BTR-60 and BMP-1 APC’s. There is much more Soviet and East German equipment on display including various uniforms and army memorabilia.
