Visit the Louwman Car Museum

See the largest public classic car collection in the world!

The Louwman Museum is where more than 130 years of automotive innovation, progress and design are illustrated by more than 275 historic and classic cars from all over the world. Highlights include the world’s first automobile from 1894 (left), Winston Churchill’s private London towncar, the silver Aston Martin DB5 from James Bond’s ‘Goldfinger’ and a Cadillac owned by Elvis Presley. Additional collections of vehicle-themed art, miniature models, racing posters, prize trophies, and even aircraft are all included and well worth a look.

The Louwman family auto collection dates back to 1934. Since then, with three different locations, they have added vehicles and refined the exhibit extensively. The current building was designed by renowned American architect Michael Graves and was opened by Her Majesty Queen Beatrix on 2 July 2010. (photo)
