Schlumpf Collection, Mulhouse

Schlumpf Collection, Mulhouse, France

Visited in 1983, 2007 and again in 2019

The National Museum – Schlumpf Bugatti Collection is chronicled all over the web and in hundreds if not thousands of books.

And yet in real life it is such a breathtaking display and so well worth a visit! The sheer size of the collection is overwhelming and even the most seasoned of motoring history enthusiasts can tire of the seemingly endless rows of exquisite marques. The Schlumpf brothers were famous for amassing an incredible collection of Bugattis, and when you realise how exclusive Bugattis are – many museums have just one or two – the collection really is huge.

Bugatti Type 35
Bugatti EB110

Hoewever, the museum does have other makes besides Bugattis. Not just French makes such as Delahaye, Delage, Hotchkiss, Citroen and Peugeot, but also Jaguars, Mercedes-Benz etc.

There is also an impressive display of veteran cars
