With the foundation of the Auto-Technik-Museum e.V., the history of the Technik Museum Sinsheim began in 1980. Since its opening on May 6, 1981, it has become one of the largest technical museums in the world. But the expansion possibilities are now almost exhausted. The association's board agreed to build an extension, the so-called "Hall 3".
The construction work for this new exhibition hall with around 3,000 m² usable area has begun. This will open up opportunities for the museum in the near future for changing special exhibitions, which go far beyond what was previously possible due to the limited space capacity. The exhibitions will each have a special car brand or era, with both young and old-timers coming into play. The beginning will be a presentation of the unique car and racing history of Alfa Romeo.
The new building adapts optically to the existing museum halls. Show windows in lofty heights give a foretaste of what awaits visitors inside. In addition, Hall 3 will be equipped with a passenger lift that will allow access to not only the galleries and the roof platform, but also the "Flight Deck" of adjacent Hall 2. Visitors with physical disabilities will now be able to get closer to the Concorde and Museum highlights Tupolev TU-144.
