Technikmuseum Sinsheim

There are two large technik museums in the region: Technik museum Sinsheim (Link) and Technik museum Speyer. They have different content, but if there is a lack of time, it is quite possible to choose one.

We like museum in Speyer better: that set of exhibits is more interesting to us. But this does not mean that there is nothing to watch in Sinsheim.
