Cité de l'Automobile National Museum - Collection Schlumpf

Mulhouse | France

About the Museum

L’Association du Musée National de l’Automobile was created under exceptional circumstances to save the Schlumpf collection and keeping it in Alsace. In 1981, the association brought together the City of Mulhouse, the Haut-Rhin Département, the Alsace Region, the Mulhouse Chamber of Commerce, the Automobile Club de France, the Panhard Company and the organisers of the Paris Motor Show to buy the collection, the grounds and the buildings which now house the Cité de l’Automobile, and set up l’Association pour la Gestion du Musée National de l’Automobile, which became responsible for opening the museum to the public.

Cité de l’Automobile is listed as a National heritage site by the French government and has the largest displayed collection of automobiles, including the largest and most comprehensive collection of Bugatti motor vehicles in the world.
