A REUNION WITH THE CHAMPION CARS
Enjoy a Grand Prix of memories by visiting this unique collection. Here we exclusively exhibit original memorabilia from the personal collection of Michael Schumacher, including all the original cars from the years in which he became Formula One World Champion seven times.
WITH THIS EXHIBITION, ONE OF THE WORLD´S MOST IMPORTANT MOTOR RACING COLLECTIONS, WE WANT TO CELEBRATE MICHAEL’S UNIQUE CAREER WITH YOU.
The exhibition includes original cars from Michael’s pre-Formula 1 era and a total of 12 Formula 1 cars, plus more than 20 original helmets, overalls and more than 40 original trophies. They all bear witness to one of the most successful careers in the history of Formula 1.
7 world championship titles, 91 Grand Prix victories, 68 pole positions and 155 podium finishes make Michael the absolute icon of his sport.
The Michael Schumacher Private Collection revives historical sporting moments and impresses with the sheer number of original objects, from the personal collection of the record holding World Champion.
In the Audiovisual room you can choose between various videos, some original radio comments, onboard sound of the cars and video comments of companions of Michael’s career. A highlight for every racing fan.
You can then take a piece of memory home with you from the fan shop.
THE 2006 RACING CAR CAN BE
EXPERIENCED IN THREE DIMENSIONS
The world premiere of the Michael Schumacher Private Collection is the Ferrari 248 F1 from 2006, the first Formula 1 car ever to have been endered in photographic reality as a three dimensional model using Gigapixel technology.
Gigapixel production involves the use of robotic cameras to capture tens of thousands of ultra high resolution images, which are mapped on a grid and combined together. The photo robots moved on three axes to capture every ten square centimeters of the Ferrari, with customized software transcoding those two dimensional photos to a three dimensional texture.
The result is the exact digital replication of the physical car, with every screw, every small aerodynamic feature and even the wear on the tyres. The Gigapixel 248 F1 is presented on a touchscreen display for visitors to explore.
10 AM – 8 PM DAILY
The permanent exhibition on the historical grounds of the Cologne Airport at the Butzweilerhof is open seven days a week.
ADMISSION IS FREE.
We ask all visitors to respect the exhibits, not to touch them, and we wish you a lot of fun while walking through the Michael Schumacher Private Collection.
