A long-awaited exhibition featuring cars from Michael Schumacher’s Formula 1 career opened this weekend at the new Cologne MotorWorld museum.

The seven-time F1 champion’s personal collection of cars, including Ferraris, Jordans and Benettons, was unveiled to the Schumacher family and former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo on Friday. 

Also being displayed is his collection of race suits, helmets, press cuttings and other memorabilia from a career which spanned 21 years. The exhibition is free to attend and is open seven days a week.  

The rest of the museum also displays supercars, significant road cars and bikes, with the historic Butzweilerhof airport expecting to host more than half a million visitors for the Schumacher exhibition per year.

“The Michael Schumacher Private Collection is a huge thank you from the Schumacher family to the many fans of Michael and motor sport,” said Schumacher family representative Sabine Kehm.

“It displays significant pieces from his personal collection. The fact that this exhibition has found a home at Motorworld Cologne is perfect for us: on the one hand, it is situated just a few kilometres away from Michael’s hometown of Kerpen, while on the other hand, everything here emanates a love for automobiles.”
