Never heard of this manufacturer before, but the museum is very informative for people like me. I liked the military vehicles section, and the motorcycles. The souvenirs were very expensive and couldn't find a parking easily though.

There is a lot of nice old cars and trucks there. Several which you wuld never seen before. Some could be familiar from old movies. Loved the F-1 cars.

I visited the place expecting something much bigger, e.g. you still have a few cars and trucks but far to be a good museum for a manufacture. The cars are not very famous outside Netherlands and are only small cars, so is something that for a foreign is not so interesting. The truck which is the core business of DAF,... More

You don't have to be a car buff to find the DAF Museum entertaining. The collection of impressive military, commercial, private use, and race equipment is beyond impressive. Embarrassingly, I was not familiar with the DAF company. After reading reviews I'm glad that I put this stop on my calendar. We were crunched for time and spent about 70 minutes... More

I was very surprised by the amount of items on display & the size of the museum. I'd always associated DAF with trucks, didn't realise the amount of cars they produced. But there's a lot, lot more than just DAF exhibits & everything looks immaculate. A great way to spend a couple of hours, my 3yr old son(wheel junkie) thouroughly... More

Some beautifully kept examples of various DAF vehicles from the beginning to modern times It was surprising what a range there was. The museum is very well laid out and you can purchase snacks and drinks in its own cafe The guide we had was excellent and nearly all the people that work there are ex DAF employees A nice... More

We visited in February. We had a really great time exploring this museum as a surprise destination in Eindhoven. It was close to the city center--easily walkable for 3 years+. Inside the museum it was wonderful--totally accessible for strollers and wheelchairs. Little cafe for coffee and a snack (not for lunch)--outside food is allowed and there are picnic areas in...

I loved the truck-pulled bus, kept in beautiful condition. But there were many other wonderful things to see from the history of this great European manufacturer: Cars with DAF's innovative "variomatic" automatic transmission, buses -- many of which, though decades old, remain in reliable service in Africa and elsewhere, and of course trucks from the earliest horse-pulled truck at the...

I visited with my son and we spent about two hours here. It's great to see so many old DAF's. There is a fantastic section where cross sections are cut from engines and gearboxes. All the old vehicles as well as new make it a great visit. They even have the old blacksmith's shop where it all started.
