Coolest car museums around the world (Part 2)

Last time, we had started talking about the Coolest car museums around the world, true tributes to the contribution of car engineers, designers and developers. So far, we have listed the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan and the Mille Miglia Museum in Brescia. Today, we add more car museums to our list:

In Tokyo Japan, you can enjoy the awesome Toyota Mega Web. This tribute to the auto world is part museum, part amusement park. Located in an ultra modern shopping center on the outskirts of Tokyo, the Toyota Mega Web also features a history of the automobile and a science museum, meant to present to the whole wide world the technical advances up to date (many of which have been accomplished by Japan). Among the many amusements available here, you can take a virtual ride in a computer self-driving car or see the latest Toyota models not yet launched outside of Japan. So technology and entertainment is what you’ll find in Japan.

The Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany is another car museum you simply cannot miss. German style class and high tech rules here and the starts of the motor show are the emblematic 1950s 300SL Gullwing and the 11 million dollars worth 500K (one of the last 5 out of a total 25 pieces to have survived). There is a motorsports section including futuristic F1 Mercedes-McLaren models and the 1956 Grand Prix winner car of Juan Manuel Fangio.

America is just the place for you if you are in for weird funny or majestic car museums. in Auburn, Indiana, visit the International Monster Truck Museum. That’s right, a museum dedicated to trucks. You can find here the first Bigfoot ever to have been designed, Beast, Goliath and many other spectacular models.
