The House of Petrol

The Museum

Collecting ‘Petroliana’ is a passion we, as enthusiastic collectors, share. Finding that oilcan, gas pump or enamel sign you are looking for is rewarding. Through the years, we have acquired and built our own collection and we are proud to present our museum ‘the House of Petrol’. With over 50 gas pumps from different manufacturers, a wide collection of enamel signs, petrol
cans, oil cans, oil bottles and pourers, lubesters, various classic cars and other garage items we hope to provide a museum to be enjoyed by collectors, petrolheads and petrol enthusiasts from all over the world.

Our ambition is to add value to historical knowledge of the period approx. 1900-1960 regarding the world of service stations,
the various brands delivering oil and gasoline and all associated businesses like car manufacturers and miscellaneous items. Please contact us if you have stories or items regarding the history of petrol, information is always welcome.

We continuously look for ‘Petroliana’ items to add to our museum collection and web shop, please contact us if you have items for sale.

We are only opened on reservation.

The museum has a meeting room and we can cater food and drinks.
