I went through the VW Academy and Museum about two years ago with my 
students and some faculty members from my school. We couldn't go through 
the plant at the time because they were adding the new Atlas SUV line to 
go with the Passat line that has been producing that car for North 
America since the plaint open about 5 or 6 years ago. The only thing we 
had to pay for was lunch at the cafeteria inside(good food by the way). 
The museum is great. Don't know if it's still there but there was a 1943 
KDF inside. I about died when I saw it setting there. Oldest VW I've 
ever seen in person by far. Other cool VWs there too. I was talking to 
them and told about Clementine and we agreed that if the Passat had 
never replaced the T3s this would be where the T3s for north America 
would be produced now. Just something to think about.
