The Auto & Technik Museum Sinsheim opened in 1981 in Sinsheim, Germany and is run by a registered alliance called "Auto & Technik Museum Sinsheim e.V." which also runs the Technik Museum Speyer. As of 2004, it has more than 3,000 exhibits and an exhibition area of more than 50,000 m² (indoors and outdoors). In addition to exhibitions, the museum also has a 22m x 27m IMAX 3D theatre. It receives more than 1 million visitors per year.
In 2003, Air France donated one of its retiring Concorde aircraft to the museum. With a Tupolev Tu-144 on display since 2001, it is the only place where both supersonic passenger aircraft are shown.
The museum's alliance acquired a Russian Buran space shuttle in 2004 which is planned to be included in the collection soon.
