In its collection, the Axle, Wheel and Carriage Museum in Wiehl presents artefacts dating from prehistoric times to the 21st century, which illustrate the cultural and technological history of the drawn wagon over a period of more than 5 500 years. The last century is demonstrated using the firm and product history of the BPW Bergische Achsen KG in Wiehl.
