About the Museum
The ŠKODA Museum collection contains about 340 items, primarily series-production passenger vehicles, rally cars, prototypes, tens of engines, four motorcycles and one bicycle - the bicycle, a Slavia of 1899, is the oldest exhibit. The first car produced by the company, the Voiturette, and the Ferat, a car that appeared in the Ferat Vampire movie, are part of the collection, too, and so is a fleet of 24 vehicles regularly appearing at car exhibitions (e.g. Techno-Classica Essen) and vintage car rallies (e.g. Sachsen Classic, Kitzbüheler Alpen Rally, Silvretta Classic, Oldtimer Bohemia Rally, etc.).
The Museum is the brand's new showcase, a project designed to invite visitors to an exciting interactive multimedia journey though ŠKODA AUTO history, using a 1,800 sqm exhibition area in historical production halls to feature vehicles, films, photographs, documents etc. Moreover, the Museum boasts a new multifunction conference centre called "Laurin & Klement Forum" and the VÁCLAV Café/Restaurant, a modern-furnished facility surrounded by a historical setting.
