The European National Motor Museums Association

Very good news, six major European automobile museums have decided to join forces: Autoworld Brussels (Belgium), The National Automobile MuseumSchlumpf Collection (France), The National Car MuseumCompiegne Castle (France), Louwman Museum (Holland), the MAUTO – National Automobile Museum of Turin (Italy) and the National Motor Museum of Beaulieu (England). These 6 museums have exceptional, varied and complementary multi-brand collections. They present not only the automobile as one of the most important technological achievements of all time, but also its great influence and role in society. In addition to history and technology, these museums offer visitors a varied view of the automobile, including body design, culture, sport and competition, luxury, safety, alternative energy and the future of mobility. These collections, which total some 1,500 cars, therefore constitute an important part of the cultural heritage, each collection interpreting it in its own way. While remaining independent, this association will allow museums to carry out joint actions, for example to present a joint stand at car shows, such as Auto e Moto d’Epoca (Bologna in November) and Rétromobile in 2024. Museums are also considering several other avenues for longer-term collaboration. We will be sure to inform you of new initiatives.
