Cité de l'Automobile - getting there

One of the main reasons to visit Mulhouse is to view the marvelous Cité de l'Automobile with The Schlumpf Collection.
The museum is accessed by either tram or bus from the Central Railway Station : Gare SNCF à Mulhouse. We used the tram.
Tickets for the tram are available from a dispensing machine outside the station or from a booth in the Arrival Hall of the Station.(open 7h30 - 12h15 and from 13h45 - 18h30)

Ticket costs
One way : € 1,40
Duo (return trip for 1 person or one way for 2 person : € 2,50
Family (3-5 persons) Return: € 4,00
24 hour pass : € 4
Website ticket costs

The journey takes about eight minutes along the “Red” Tram Line 1. 5th stop is “Musee de l’Auto”.
After leaving the tram at that stop, You should be able to see the Red building housing the Collection.

Basically the Musee is open - 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. 3 April to 29 October (hours may be reduced during winter).
You can do a self guided tour of the collection using the audioguide (available in 6 languages) supplied with entry fee:
Entry National Automobile Museum €10.5
National Automobile Museum + Cité du Train combined €17.5

Allow a full day to visit the Museum - you do yourself an injustice if you do not!

The tram has continuous overhead digital display of next stop info.
Even I could work the ticket dispensing machine. I used cash to purchase the tickets.
