Deutsches Museum, Munich
Avoid the Deutsches Museum! I was dragged along there TWICE during my stay, and it certainly didn't seem any better the second time! If you like transport museums, you'll probably love it here, and maybe there are other parts of it that are great, but in my experience, it's just a room full of cars, then a room full of planes, then.......you get the picture.
Although I didn't do this, other people i was with did a cycling tour of the city - which was supposedly really good. I think they were run by a guy called Mike, and they're done in English.
Fondest memory: We went to visit the Olympic stadium, which was really great, even for me, a complete sport-hater! Go up the tower to get a fantastic view. We went when there was work being done on the swimming pool and we managed to sneak in there too...
.. and i forget this one too...
But i did go to the Deutsches Museum, on the recommendation of this cute guy in a cafe. The museum is very science-oriented for the most part, with lots of interactive stuff (astronomy, radio, sun dials, musical instruments, transportation relics, etc). And in choosing the cold outside or the warmth inside, i liked the museum. =) The museum is right by the Isar River.
An interesting museum, where you can find all kinds of technical items, from Aerospace to Chemistry, Astronomy or Computers.

Go to the Deutsches Museum.
On a Sunday, board a raft and travel down the Isar.
Try the Augustiner Keller!
Fondest memory: Living in a beautiful house about 30km south of Munich and travelling 3 stations by train every morning to work.
Vist the 'Deutsches Museum'. It is the musem for people who are interested in various technologies. My favorite two sections are the ones on air travel and mining. Plan two days to view the entire museum. If you only have one day then choose two or three areas.
Fondest memory: Cleanliness and conservative lifestyle in Munich. The streets in the city center are not only clean but after 10:00 p.m. also emtpy. What I also really enjoy is how punctual and well layed out the public transportation system is.
For anybody with an interest in science and technology, the Deutsches Museum is probably not to be missed. With an exhibition area of around 55,000 sq. metres, it is the biggest technical-natural science museum in the world.
