About The Rolls-Royce Museum
Sir Henry Royce said “Whatever is rightly done, however humble, is noble”.
A shady road alongside the Dornbirner Ache (river) will take you to the entrance to the Rappenlochschlucht. There, right opposite the Eastern Alp's largest gorge, is a 160-year-old building complex, telling a lot about the history of Dornbirn's textile industry and especially the very important location Gütle. The most striking building of the complex is definitely the old factory with its 30-metre chimney From the entrance on the eastern side of the building, visitors can enter the world of Rolls-Royce museum, with its impressive background and exhibits. The 'Cooke Street' shows how Royce worked in Manchester 100 years ago. An electric motor starts a huge horizontal engine, which subsequently drives the transmission and all machines with leather transmission belts.
On the first floor is the 'Hall of Fame', where vintage Rolls-Royces built between the two World Wars can be seen, some of which had been owned by royalty and dictators. The English tearoom takes you back to the British colonial period, with its carved rosewood interior, where refreshments are served. From the tearoom the guests have a splendid view to the second floor room with its high ceiling, bathed in the warm light of the afternoon sun. Just a few kilometres from the Dornbirn town centre you find yourself in a place where time seems to stand still. *Image is not necessarily one of the museum.
