The Märklineum & Märklin Shop Göppingen
Myth of Märklin
The world of model railways in a museum
The Märklineum in Göppingen will open its doors in 2021. The museum takes visitors through more than 160 years of the model railway manufacturer's history and brings the myth of the Märklin brand (back) to life.
Founded in 1859 by Theodor Friedrich Wilhelm Märklin, the company developed from a small factory for tin toys into today's world-renowned market leader of high-quality metal toys and especially model trains. In 1891, a model railway was presented for the first time at the Leipzig Spring Fair.
On around 2,000 square metres of exhibition space, the Märklineum presents products from the entire history of the company. Interactive media technology and creative stagings turn Märklin history into captivating experiences. The highlight of the museum is the 400 square metre model railway layout, which is accessible on two levels.
The Märklin Store
The steel construction with the appearance of a locomotive shed makes the store worth seeing on its own. Products from the companies Märklin, Trix and LGB are presented in countless glass showcases. In addition, all the well-known manufacturers of accessories are in the range. Special bargains can be bought in the associated treasure trove. The Märklin Service offers support for your own model railway. You can also find small specials and gift ideas in the store.
