Almost all museums are closed due to the worldwide corona crisis. Let that just be a nice outing during the Easter days. But don’t worry: at various museums you can virtually take a tour of the rich history. Time for a small virtual world trip!
We start this world trip right away, because with Google Maps we settle at the Japanese Ibaraki. There is the Honda Collection Hall. Here are not only a lot of (racing) cars, but also motorbikes and robots, for example. You will not miss a corner of the museum through this virtual tour.
Porsche has its own museum in Stuttgart: the all-encompassing The Porsche Museum. Here Porsche displays its rich history of more than a hundred years. In addition to many classics, many modern cars are also ready for a virtual visit.
In the Italian Sant’Agata Bolognese no one is allowed on the street at the moment, but via Google Maps we can visit part of the Museo Lamborghini. Although the hall is not very large, we can board almost any car! It is a bit of a puzzle, but if you pass a car with the door open, you can virtually board. Recommended!
The Skoda Auto Museum can also be found at Skoda’s home base in Mladá Boleslav, Czech Republic. It reopened after a major renovation in 2012 and is now good for presenting the brand’s 100-year car history. In addition to normal cars, there are also various concepts, such as that of the Skoda Rapid.
Every Volvo fan has probably been there during a holiday, but a second visit can never hurt. Volvo has its own museum in Gothenburg, Sweden. The rich history of the brand can be admired over several floors. Fortunately also via the computer!
Just like Porsche and Skoda, Mercedes-Benz also has a large museum in its home city. For Das Haus, this is Stuttgart, Germany, where the Mercedes-Benz Museum can be found. Here Mercedes owns one of the largest and most impressive collections. Make a virtual 360 degree visit here.
Mazda has its own museum in Hiroshima, which is also extensively illuminated by Google. In addition to real classics, there are also numerous race cars and young timers, such as the RX-7 and the first MX-5.
We close the worldwide museum round in Maranello, Italy. Here Ferrari has its own museum. Although the inside of the museum is not very extensive to visit from behind the computer, a tour around the building is at least as much fun.
