Museum concept and contents of the exhibition

The museum exhibits objects inside and outside the museum. The arrangement in the interior is in the style of large dioramas, which allow objects to be shown in contemporary real environments. Vehicles, objects, and life-size dolls were assembled into scenes with this in mind. In the outdoor area, ready-to-drive vehicles are shown in operation at events. Only a small number of objects are visible outside all year round.
