DAF Museum

On December 11 2011 the Volvo Klassieker Vereniging (a classic Volvo-club in the Netherlands) held a meeting at the DAF Museum in Eindhoven (the Netherlands). It was in my residence and since I never visited the DAF Museum it was a great opportunity to visit this museum!

The museum is very nice and it’s about the same size as the Volvo Museum in Gothenburg (Sweden), but there was more space between the cars than in Sweden. And just like the Volvo Museum there are a lot of trucks (since DAF produces more trucks than cars). Even if you’re not a truck-fan it’s great to visit the museum! Want to see pictures of the Volvo Museum? You can check them out here.

If you want to visit the DAF Museum, here’s the address:
DAF Museum
Tongelresestraat 27
5613 DA Eindhoven (NL)
Tel. (+31) 040 – 24 44 364
