Common history

The MAN Museum in Augsburg, a joint venture of MAN Diesel & Turbo SE and MAN SE, uses original exhibits, models, pictures and information boards to take visitors on a journey through time from the first diesel engine to today's innovative products and services.

MAN and manroland web systems have been producing diesel engines and printing presses in Augsburg since the 19th century. The MAN Museum has been dedicated to these two products among other works of MAN engineering in the premises of the former Research Institute for Mechanics and Design since 1953.
