Technology & Maritime Museum Malmo Sweden

My wife and I can both be considered diehard gearheads. Where ever we go, eventually we will discover a car related attraction which we have to investigate. Many of our trips are even built around car related activities or attractions. Recently we traveled to Sweden and I immediately began a search for a near by car museum. We spent most of our time on this trip in Malmo in SW Sweden just a short drive from Copenhagen Denmark.

Although I was unable to find a collector car museum close by I did find the Malmo Technology & Maritime Museum which had a large transportation element including a submarine! There were no muscle cars but the collection was interesting and the museum is well worth a visit if you ever find yourself in Malmo.

 

This diorama featured a 1950s setting that could have been in the US.

Gas pumps are a big collector item in the States and this one in Sweden would look good in my Man Cave.

I liked the rear end of this car. The way the top slants back and meets the rear of the car.

This 1964 Ford Fairlane can with an interesting display card. It read: "In the 1960s the rebellious youths of the time turned the car into a place of immorality, drunkenness and necking. Adults agonized, suffered and were horrified." I think it is interesting the museum chose to use an American car for this notation on 1960s society in Sweden!

If you are old enough you have most likely seen this very 1946 Ford like Volvo on the streets in the US.

Even though we did not find a muscle car museum we did spot this 1967 Dodge Coronet on the street in two different towns on the same day! We also spotted a 1982 Camaro and mid 80s Trans Am on the street.

About the Author: I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check our our www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com page) As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out with our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at http://www.LegendaryFarms.com.
