How do i\I get from the central station to the auto museum and how do I get back ? What are the buss numbers
Get the No1 tram from the stop in front of the station. The Tram stop is named
Musee de l'Automobile. Buy a return ticket "Duo"(€2.40). (It's possible to get a family ticket 3-5 persons as well for a considerable saving)
The auto museum web site suggests:
"- From central Mulhouse take bus number 17
- From the railway station (SNCF) take bus number 4"
We have a car so have not tried this. Here's their web site. http://www.collection-schlumpf.com/en/schlumpf/377-access/
Travel Tips for Mulhouse
Inside the museum you are also able to find out, what it feels like to roll over with your car in case of an accident.
It is mainly ment in order to convince people of the need to use a saftey-belt, and first they roll over twice and stay some time then totally hanging upside down. Unfortunately I could not try it out myself, as waiting-lines were quite long and my time was limited.
Maybe next time...
JACQUOT Tonneau a Vapeur 1878
This unique car with a steam-engine was built by Louis Lejeune, a french engeneer in 1878 - at a time, when cars still were a minority in the streets and a person with a red flag had to walk in front of the car, in order to warn the pedestrians.
Have a look at the wheels - at that time they still used the wheels of horse-carriages.
NObody would have believed these days that car trafic would ever get such an extent.
The car is a donation by the descendants of the engeneer to the museum.
Serpollet Double Phaeton L - 1903
This is another early car made in France.
Click on my picture and see the great details:
Even though the car has no top and could be used only in sunshine, the seats look as if they would be completely new.
Driving a car was not a necessity in 1903, it was more for the fun of it, and was able only in best weather-conditions or with appropriat clothings.
In 1905 this company started to build buses and trucks with steam-engines, BUT unfortunately the time of production was ended with the early death of Mr.serpollet in 1907.

Isotta-Fraschini Berline 8A of 1925
All the most precious cars like the 2 Bugattis Royal, most of the other special Bugattis, Rolls Royce, Hizpano-Suiza , Isotta-Fraschini etc. are on display inside an extra-hall with less light and unfortunately also rather hard to take pictures of them.
The car on my picture was the favorite car of Rudolfo Valentino and is also shown inside that seperate hall.
