The Swiss Museum of Transport in Luzern opened the two-storey “road transport” in 2009 marking the 50th anniversary, the most diverse and modern museum in Europe. The heart of the exhibition hall is a spectacular car theatre – a specially developed fully automatic parking system from KLAUS Multiparking. 80 different carriages, bicycles and automobiles from the time between 1860 and 2005 are on show. At the press of a button, visitors select which vehicle the KLAUS Multiparking parking robot will bring out for closer examination.

"We're very proud that we were able to participate in such a fantastic project. The parking system at the Swiss Museum of Transport is like a symbioses between humans and machines – it's very exciting that we are able to put one of our systems to use on a cultural level," says Günther Seiderer, managing directors at Klaus Multiparking GmbH.

The car theatre is an innovative, interactive presentation area with a dedicated visitor gallery. Visitors use a red signal button to select their favourite vehicle from the high rack storage area – like a voting show. The system brings the jewel that has been selected out on a turntable for a closer look. Here, the selected items can be viewed from all sides and at the same time details are provided in an entertaining and informative manner.

The car theatre uses modern technology to provide information about the history of the vehicles and to tell interesting stories about them. In computing terms, this would be considered Museum of Transport V2.0 because it's a museum where visitors don't just view the items, they actively interact with them.
