Bringing the past alive

The Audi museum mobile combines historic exhibits with modern presentation forms to produce an exciting symbiosis, making the journey through the past an equally informative and interesting experience. Even the museum�s unusual architecture, which follows the theme of a tree�s annual rings behind its fully glazed facade, symbolically unites permanence and change. Modern presentation techniques using pictures, presentations and multimedia elements place the numerous exhibits in their historical context and bring the past alive.

As well as the company history of the present-day AUDI AG, the museum focuses on the technological progress that took place in the car industry in the last century. The fact that the exhibits are integrated into their speci.c economic and social surroundings makes the museum mobile far more than merely a technical museum: the museum not only takes visitors on a tour of the entire history of the car, but also provides a fascinating look back at the 20th century with its radical changes.

The museum mobile also holds temporary exhibitions on subjects from the areas of automobility, design and art, while the museum shop stocks a wide range of old and new collector�s items.

The museum mobile also provides the unique setting for the event series Jazz at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt.

Permanent exhibition

The permanent exhibition is the heart of the museum mobile. From the entrance level 0, the elevator as a "time machine" takes you back to the year 1899 on level 3, where the tour starts. The two levels of the permanent exhibition, 1899 to 1945 and 1946 to 2000, are each divided into seven sections. Each area gives an overview of an individual epoch; texts and images portray the relationship between the automobile, technology and society. The exhibits are the highlights of the permanent exhibition. Over 80 automobiles and motorcycles illustrate the history of the company. 14 of them, the most important prototypes, move permanently on a paternoster elevator through all levels of the building. Important events in the history of Audi, as, for example, the Auto Union merger in 1932, are illustrated in multimedia displays and make you an eyewitness to history. In addition to this, the technology gallery with interactive hands-on exhibits gives an overview of the most important milestones in the development of the automobile.
