The 15 stall railway roundhouse is the heart of the museum. From here, all the different areas can be explored. An interesting, educational and technically state-of-the-art exhibition awaits you.
Life-size figures, various interactive media stations and enactments spread the fascination with and knowledge about the "Black Giants" and work at the motive power depot in a modern and lively way.
Together with the "Schiefe Ebene" educational trail and a signposted tour through the railway village of Neuenmarkt, the DDM lets you experience railway with past, present and future.
As part of the museum development concept 2020, a new interactive exhibition about the "Schiefe Ebene" and a rework of the model railway layout were added.
Among the special highlights of the exhibition are the saloon car 10 242 and the steam locomotive 10 001 - the last steam locomotive newly developed for the German Bundesbahn and the only surviving exemplar of this class.
