The dream of unrestricted mobility on land, water and in the air has always been the driving force behind technological inventions and original utopias. On show at the Museum are Austria’s oldest railway, which was still horse-drawn at the time, the breakneck flying machines of aviation’s early pioneers, and the most successful racing car of the post-war period. Climb into our balloon basket and get to grips with your own fear of heights as you experience the theme of mobility from some surprising angles. 800 or so exhibits showcased on 3,000 m² all have exciting stories to tell about the past, present and future of mobility.
The Museum is located in the former Meierhof Farm of the Monastery and showcases the rich history and tradition of the fire department. The place houses historic apparatus, equipment, and artifacts. Museum attractions include horse-drawn vehicles, some 1920´s fire engines, and other equipment from days gone by.
It is a Museum that shows the past, present and future of firefighting, rescue and emergency medical service, combined with an interactive educational experience.
This is actually a set of museums housed under one roof. There's an emergency medical services museum, a foto museum, an electro-technical museum and a fire police museum - the latter features a few fire engines.
