Welcome to the Fördertechnik Museum in Sinsheim

Experience, marvel, invent – for more than ten years now, the Fördertechnik-Museum has opened its doors to all visitors who are enthusiastic about technology, research and development. On the site of the former Axmann Fördertechnik company, we offer a wide range of activities for all age groups on 2,500 m² of hall space and demonstrate the great importance of conveyor technology. The museum also includes an indoor play hall and, at weekends and during the vacations, also offers the opportunity to take on the role of a real inventor with the “fischertechnik” construction kit system. If you want to experience a varied day full of exciting technology, you’ve come to the right place. Visit us in Sinsheim and experience unforgettable hours with the whole family in our museum.

Our adventure museum contains a unique collection of exhibits from all eras of transportation development. Over 150 systems and devices, ranging from wheels to high-tech systems, can not only be viewed up close, but also experienced in full operation. Visitors are allowed to put the conveyor technology into operation and have to lend a hand themselves when setting an elevator in motion or crossing a fictitious river with a gondola.

The largest installations include a letter sorting machine and a shoe sorter from the USA. Numerous teddy bears, rabbits and other funny plush figures ride around the museum on a roller coaster, among other things, and are not only exciting for young visitors to discover. In addition to a variety of different conveyor systems, often provided by generous companies, the Sinsheim Adventure Museum also displays its own creative installations, such as an ascending mobile equipped with footballs and a wild volleyball game – balls that are thrown up by numerous pneumatic cannons, similar to a water feature.

However, the Fördertechnik Museum in Sinsheim is not only a place of technology, but also a place full of emotions. In addition to the fascinating exhibits, there are other masterpieces such as sculptures of steel horses and life-size cows that move with a motor drive and bring their limbs to life in an almost living way. This interplay of art and technology gives the museum a unique atmosphere that captivates visitors.

But it’s not just the moving sculptures that are impressive; the oldest pieces in the museum in Sinsheim also have a very special story to tell. A 200-year-old wagon from Romania takes visitors back in time and gives them a feel for the means of transportation used by past generations. Nearby is a 120-year-old, fully functional mill elevator that still masters its craft and amazes visitors with its technical precision.

The Fördertechnik Museum – an experience for the whole family – in Sinsheim is located near Heidelberg and Heilbronn and is easily accessible via the A6 highway. You will recognize the Fördertechnik Museum by its two landmarks: The giant pipe, which points the way into the museum, and carriage 5 of the Wuppertal suspension railroad, which was decommissioned in 2017 and has since served the Fördertechnik Museum as a walk-in visitor attraction.

An exciting new feature became part of the Fördertechnik Museum Sinsheim in 2015 and has been a source of excitement ever since. An indoor play hall was built to offer young visitors an incomparable experience full of fun and games.

The indoor play hall is a true paradise for young and old, a place where excess energy can be released – whether it’s playing soccer, hurtling down the three climbing slides or racing with the fun vehicles in the racing fleet. A game at the table tennis table also provides fun and good humor and should not be missed. And even the youngest visitors are not forgotten with a play area specially designed for them at the Fördertechnik Museum in Sinsheim: A store, various construction and play corners offer them the opportunity to live out their imagination and experience unforgettable moments. Find out more here: Indoor play hall in the Fördertechnik Museum Sinsheim.

Important: you are only permitted to enter the indoor play hall with socks/slippery socks/gym shoes or the museum’s own overshoes.

Open workshop: every weekend from 12:00 – 17:00
Axmann workshop: on request/on selected days from 12:00 – 17:00
The open workshop was created in 2016 to not only demonstrate technology to visitors, but to make it understandable in the truest sense of the word. Here, tinkering and creativity are in demand every weekend: marble runs, vehicles, amusement parks, conveyor systems and robots are just a handful of projects that can be realized with the help of the “fischertechnik” modular system. Visitors can feel like real inventors every weekend and during the vacations between 12 noon and 5 pm.

On selected days, visitors also have access to the Axmann workshop. Here, a self-developed modular system is waiting to be discovered. Various models from the field of conveyor technology can be assembled from original industrial profiles, motors and tools. From the supposedly simple conveyor belt to the complicated robot, we are constantly expanding our range.

And if you don’t have enough time to build – no problem! You can find offers for workshops here.

In cooperation with the Förderverein “Erlebnismuseum Fördertechnik e.V.”, special events are held at regular intervals. From lectures on the subject of electromobility to a repair café and a museum vernissage, the aim is to organize interesting events that go beyond the subject of technology.

The museum is particularly popular with children’s birthday groups. The combination of museum, playground and workshop promises an unforgettable day in Sinsheim, where boredom is a foreign word.

Are you looking for a place to hold children’s birthday parties, club meetings, representatives’ conferences or similar events? Please do not hesitate to contact us.
