In 1895, Václav Klement and Václav Laurin founded their business here in Mladá Boleslav. This makes ŠKODA one of the oldest and most traditionrich automobile brands in the world. ŠKODA Muzeum brings the past to life in an authentic place, namely the former production halls, where cars were made as late as in 1928. Immediately adjacent, the company’s largest and most modern plant continues this history, churning out new Škodas day after day.
However, history is always in motion even in the museum thanks to special exhibitions and event series and last but not least the exchange of exhibits that provide inspiration and variety all year long.
This space is dedicated to the brand’s tradition. Three pairs of cars represent the brand world of ŠKODA. Fascinating cars, large and small exhibits tell their own stories, of proud car owners, of special aspects in everyday tales, of challenges taken and mastered. These are the stories that together make up the biography of the ŠKODA brand.
This space is the exhibition’s core, enabling the experience of the brand’s evolution, spanning from founders Laurin and Klement and their first bicycles to the future of mobility. Milestones of vehicle design are at the focus of this walk through history, complemented by clever technical innovations characteristic of ŠKODA. A wealth of films and photos brings fascinating cars back to life.
This space provides detailed proof that the museum is housed in historic former production halls. The workshop is the place where tradition is nurtured as classic cars are restored. It is also about the pleasure of engaging in a trip through time driving a vintage car on today’s roads. Also visible here, however, is the making of cars at Mladá Boleslav plant, both then and now.
