    Amazing what they have achieved in 9 months. covid lockdown has put a hold on the opening. hope I can return there next year.

    I went to the museum in 2018 and it was well worth the time spent. In fact I never knew that the Rover car company actually built motorcycles, they did and one of the only two was there on show. As well as a three wheeled, Austin Seven engined, Brough Superior again super rare.
    I must say that in a previous working life I was a Building Control Surveyor and I can't say, hand on heart, that I remember seeing any sprinkler system in the building at all, which perhaps might have saved a lot of the exhibits.
    As an aside, we tried to visit the Grossglockner High Alpine pass back in 2015, but when we arrived into Austria and found the hotel, we were told that there would be low fog the next morning, well that lasted all day, and for 3 days after.......not exactly ideal for our planned trip.
    So in 2018 we decided to visit the area again, seen the museum as I said and then went onto the High Alpine road, it was clear, crystal clear in fact.
    Well worth the effort - second time lucky I guess.

    Done the same a couple of times. Always told myself I’d visit the next time.
