HERPA Miniaturmodelle GmbH - Online - Museum
Welcome at the Herpa museum
World of motion
Small models, big surprises: in the World of Motion museum in Dietenhofen, Germany, we show you the great variety of products we have manufactured from the early days in 1978.

Enjoy the fascination of our models on more than 400 square meters of exhibition space featuring various collection themes, sample models, and large dioramas for fans of vehicles and airplanes.

You have always wanted to know how a Herpa model is manufactured? Our museum has a multimedia area, and you can get an impression of what it takes to produce an airplane and a truck model, from the first plans and sketches to the shipping of the finished models.

After such an interesting tour, we suggest you complete your visit to our museum with a tour around our shop, which also carries special models and last supplies of models sold out long ago.
Visit our Christmas market

On December 1, our Herpa Christmas village will once again open its gates. In the little Christmas Village in the Museum-Shop, new rarities, special models and specialties for collectors, tinkerer and converters are available every day until December 22, 2018. Furthermore, we have a special exhibition in the museum this year. Together with Auhagen, we enchant you with a wintery diorama exhibition.

A very special highlight for the opening: An original MAN Christmas Truck brings Christmas spirit right to your door.

Now even more exhibitions and exhibits!

With its revised program and new exhibition areas, our museum has been open for business once again since September 2013. Basically, the redesigned museum area provides even greater insights into the production of Herpa models.

With many videos and lots of samples, visitors can now trace the individual production steps all the way from the original data to the finished model. In the new museum, Herpa Wings fans can now see the individual new types of the past years and the history of Herpa’s airplane models is also told in detail. One further innovation is a special exhibition area in which associations or other model manufacturers have a chance to present themselves. This way, visiting Herpa turns into an adventure for the entire family.
