Myth Märklin

The oldest and biggest Märklin collection is presented in Oberhausen. The collection contains over ten thousand pre-war Märklin toys and a much higher number is from the period after 1945. 500 of these toys are presented in Oberhausen, many of them for the first time. The exhibits of the private museum are said to fill a football field, among them are prototypes and samples at an inestimable collector's value. However, the collector wants to stay incognito.

The collection is shown in Oberhausen for only one year. It will then disappear again into the private rooms of the collector who with expert's eye separated the wheat from the chaff.

So on to Oberhausen:
