The Car Museum

The Car Museum shows the development of the car from the late 19th century to the present day and contains one of Europe’s finest car collections. There are currently about 60 veteran and classic cars in the hall, including a Mercedes 540K from 1936 that was owned by Prince Gustaf Adolf, who was our king’s father, and a Cadillac V8 from 1939 that was owned by King Gustav V and gave its name to the area Kungens Kurva (the King’s Curve).

Other unique cars in the collection are a Mercedes 300 SL ‘Måsvingen’ (the Gull Wing) from 1955, a Mercedes 290A from 1934, a Cadillac V16 from 1931 that was ordered by Ivar Kreuger, a Horch 853 from 1936, an RR Silver Ghost from 1921, a Hertel from 1898, a Clement Panhard from 1898 and an Austin Ulster from 1931.

About 50 models of veteran planes hang from the ceiling, the biggest of which, a B17 Flying Fortress from 1942, has a wingspan of 3.2 metres. A few hundred other model cars and accessories for the veteran cars are also on display. The setting is complemented by a large number of exciting enamel signs and beautiful old petrol pumps.

 

Museums of Technology

The coach house contains Europe’s biggest collection of jukeboxes. It shows the technological developments from the barrel-organ, music boxes, phonographs and gramophones to the time of the jukebox. The exhibition includes jukeboxes from the periods Antique Age, Silver Age and the colourful Golden Age.

Travel back in time and experience cycles from Grandpa’s day! The cycle museum has Sweden’s oldest cycle from the late 18th century, many penny-farthings from the whole of the 19th century, Östbergare cycles, velocipedes, children’s cycles, tricycles and the Itera, the so-called eternal bicycle from Wilhelmina from 1982. There are also about 20 motorcycles, many from the 1920s, as well as Wolf-Olle’s speedway bike!

 

The Horse Carriage Museum

The Horse Carriage Museum at the nearby Sparreholm Castle Horse Center has a large number of gigs, surreys, coaches and utility objects all with a connection to the horse. The collection includes some 50 carriages and sleighs from the late 18th century up to the 1940s.

There are also beautiful harnesses and carriage models as well as a saddlery. Most of the carriages have been collected and restored to excellent condition by Siv von Rosen.
