Václav Laurin & Václav Klement started their own business in Mladá Boleslav in 1895. Today, ŠKODA is one of the longest-established automotive brands in the world, and the Museum highlights this history in the most authentic of places – the original production halls where the company manufactured cars until 1928. Right next to this site, the biggest and most modern of the company’s plants continues the brand’s success story, producing new ŠKODA vehicles every day. And history is also in constant motion at the Museum: exhibitions, events, concerts and continuous updates of the permanent exhibits offer inspiration and diversity all year long.
The Museum provides tours in many languages, as well as additional services, including special packages for groups and children.

The Museum is dedicated to the ‘Red Arrow’ race and was brought to life by the Mille Miglia Museum Association. It was established in December 1996 by a group of Brescian businessmen known as the “Friends of the Mille Miglia”. The Association today has 50 shareholders.
The new Museum was opened to the public on 10 November 2004. Setting up this project involved restoring the Sant’Eufemia monastery complex, owned by the Brescia municipality. The property is of huge archaeological, historical and architectural value and had for some time been undergoing relentless degradation.
The Museum stands out from other automobile museums precisely because of its location at this hugely important historic site. The Mille Miglia Museum is the guardian of history there, telling its legendary story and providing living testament, day after day, to that period of the region’s past.
The Museum is not intended to be a simple archive. Instead, it aims to reconstruct this famous cultural sporting event, within the context of Italy’s vast history. The Mille Miglia Museum has been able to establish a collection of rare, four-wheeled gems, which it exhibits in its museum. This is all thanks to the devotion of private collectors and partnerships with other automobile museums, including a Cooperation Agreement the Mille Miglia has signed with the Mercedes-Benz Museum. The cars loaned to the Mille Miglia are arranged in the Museum before sets and backdrops that recall for visitors the various periods in which the race was alive.

Over 80 years ago the Louwman family recognised the importance of the motor car and decided to keep the highlights of motoring history so far for future generations. The Louwman Museum in fact dates back to 1934. Since then we have regularly added vehicles and over the years have gradually refined the collection. Today there are over 275 historic and classic motor cars in our museum. We do not aim to be all-encompassing – the motor industry has produced far too many cars over the past 130 years for that to be feasible. What we have done is compile a well-balanced collection of motor vehicles with a view to presenting a clear and fascinating overview of the history of the motor car.
The Louwman Museum was opened by Her Majesty Queen Beatrix on 2 July 2010.
