Default Michael Schumacher's F1 collection to be displayed in museum

A new Motorworld Museum in Cologne, Germany will soon start displaying items from Michael Schumacher's personal F1 collection. The museum, which is located near the driver's home town of Kerpen, will open for the public from 2017, without any admission charges.

Items that will be showcased at the new Motorworld Museum will include various F1 cars that he raced in during his career, some of his personal sports cars, and even karts from his early racing career. A few of his world driver championship trophies will also be on display. This has been made possible after Michael's family entered an agreement with the Motorworld museum to make his collection public.

Schumacher is one of the most celebrated drivers in the history of Formula 1. He has 7 championship titles to his name, out of which 5 were won consecutively from 2000-2004. He won 91 races in his 19-year long career.

The German driver retired from F1 in 2012. Unfortunately, he suffered an accident during a skiing trip with his family in 2013, sustaining severe head injuries. He hasn't made a public appearance since then.

Some pictures from the inauguration ceremony and the museum itself.

Typical German planning shining through. More details here. A must visit place in Germany now.

So classy. Nice to see some familiar faces (Norbert Haug, Ross Brawn), but disappointed that:

1. No one from Ferrari is there?

2. Michael Schumacher is missing

Here's a link to the full photo album.

This is such good news, I will surely visit this place. I still remember his last race, his retirement day and I was so incredibly sad. First he retired and later came in the news about Lance Armstrong's doping. These two were like my childhood heroes and the source of motivation. Needless to say these events took a toll on me.

I was fortunate enough to meet him at the 2011 Indian GP. He will always be the number 1 F1 driver for me. Hope he recovers and makes a public appearance as soon as possible.
