ŠKODA vehicles are bound to have passed you in the street countless times. Maybe you have even been to a ŠKODA dealership to view the latest models. The ŠKODA brand is present in showrooms all over the world. However, if you would really like to learn more about the ŠKODA brand, its philosophy and its history, you should visit the company museum in Mladá Boleslav, its production facilities or its exhibit at the Autostadt Park in Wolfsburg, Germany.

ŠKODA MUSEUM

Václav Laurin & Václav Klement started their own business in Mladá Boleslav in 1895 - today ŠKODA is one of the world's oldest automotive brands, and the Museum highlights this history in the most authentic of places, the original production halls in which the company manufactured cars until 1928. Right next to this site, the biggest and most modern of the company's plants continues the brand's success story, producing new ŠKODA vehicles every day.

The museum provides tours in many languages, as well as additional services, including special packages for groups and children. For example, why not combine the museum tour with a tour of the adjacent production facilities to experience a fascinating journey to the history of automobiles?

The museum building houses 1,800 m2 exhibition area, VÁCLAV Café/Restaurant and variety of modern conference rooms and premises, suited to host various events, concerts, exhibitions and meetings, available for rent.
