The factory museum of Märklin has a long tradition, so in the year 2000 its centenary was celebrated. Already around the year 1900, there was a "sample room" where the products of the company could be looked at. In the years 1958 and 1959, this facility became an exhibition room where not only all recent products but also products from former times were shown. This room was located in the main plant in the street called Stuttgarter Straße. After moving the administration department in a building in the Holzheimer Str. 8 in Göppingen, in the 1979, the museum area was refurnished and in October 1985, it was enlarged by an additional room. In June 2006, the museum moved back to "Werk 1" (plant 1) and was located at the Reutlinger Straße.
On 17 March 2017, there was the ground-breaking ceremony in illustrious company for the new Märklin Museum in the Stuttgarter Straße. However, another year will pass until the Museum named "Märklineum" will open. Here some impressions of the start of construction works and of the ceremony.
