Dansk Motor-og Maskinsamling Djursland - Eastjutland

The smell of lubricating oils fills the rooms. An impressive collection of historic machinery with more than 350 different engines is the El Dorado that Dansk Motorsamling exhibits. The development of Danish industrial history and the progress in production, shipping and farming have their starting point in Danish engine manufacturing.
The oldest engine is from 1868; otherwise, most of the engines on display are from Danish industry’s golden age, 1890-1930. The Danish company Burmeister & Waine was the dominating player on the world market,
and the collection has many B&W marine diesel engines.

The collection is of international class, and most of the machines are restored and can be shown in operation. The engine collection near Grenaa holds a vintage motor rally and swap meet in the autumn.
