On October 17, 2005 the construction of the museum was officially kicked off. The 8th of December in 2008 the museum was handed over to the client and opened one month later, the 28th of January officially. Since 31st January 2009 it has opened its doors to visitors.
The result is an exhibition that focuses firmly on the vehicles showcased. All ancillary architectural, media and typographic elements are designed to be unobtrusive and complement the cars.
The museum, which is as flexible as it is exclusive, functions as a home base for the vehicles.
The museum was designed by the architects Delugan Meissl. The exhibition spaces were designed by HG Merz who was also involved in the building of the award winning Mercedes-Benz Museum.
