Cité de l'Automobile in Mulhouse
Meet the collection of the National Automobile Museum near your 4-star hotel in Mulhouse
The Schlumpf collection
The collection that you can admire at the Mulhouse Automobile Museum is a family story.
It all started with the purchase of a Bugatti by Fritz in 1936. Until 1960, he was just a fan of beautiful cars. This pleasure soon became a vast network.
From then on, he secretly acquired many old cars and placed them in the HKC factory.
In 1976, together with his brother, he prepared to open the museum to the public, but the textile business they ran together went bankrupt with the oil crisis.
His collection was discovered and the National Automobile Museum Association took over the reins of his collection.
The Automobile Museum
The museum opened on 10 July 1982 in Mulhouse. The association did a monstrous job to complete the Schlumpf brothers' collection.
The public now has the opportunity to see unique pieces of the automobile while learning a lot about the history of the sector.
Over time, the collection and the activities around it have been expanded. Now they have set up educational projects and vehicle renovations.
Next door, a restaurant and a bar have also opened to keep the curious as long as possible within the walls of the Mulhouse Automobile Museum.
The Cité de l'Auto is accessible by car, an 8-minute drive from your hotel near Mulhouse.
The museum is open every day, except on 25 December. However, the opening hours vary according to the period.
Do not hesitate to visit the official website to consult them and buy your entrance ticket before your visit. The visit lasts about 2 hours.
