About the DAF Museum

A museum to spend hours in


A tour of the DAF Museum will take visitors from one surprise to the next. The inventiveness that has been characteristic for DAF vehicles from 1928 till the present day will even captivate visitors who have no special knowledge of the subject.

DAF Museum


The ground floor accommodates a pleasant village square, with shops from the 1930s, a welcoming pub, a period garage and, not to be forgotten, a replica of the Van Doornes' office. From here you can stroll around the museum to discover the many aspects of the DAF product.


The trucks are displayed downstairs and special attention is paid to the milestones in DAF's history. A special section is devoted to engines and it gives a good idea of the developments that have taken place over the years.


The upstairs gallery holds an extraordinary collection of cars, among which a number of interesting prototypes that were not taken into production.
