it's well worth spending the whole day there. Some of the large-scale exhibits, such as biplanes and boats, are ranged in rooms the size of hangars. Among the mould-breaking inventions on view in the engineering section on the ground floor is the very first diesel engine. The chemistry department on the first floor features several notable historic displays, including the monastic pharmacy from St Emmeram in Regensburg, and original equipment from Justus von Liebig's Munich laboratory. Part of the second floor has been converted into a replica of the Altamira caves while in the basement there's a convincingly gloomy mock-up of a coalmine. Meticulously constructed large-scale models are featured throughout, and the use of interactive displays makes them as absorbing for kids as adults. Check the noticeboards for the times of the daily demonstrations given by museum staff; that of the historical musical instruments on the first floor is particularly worth catching.
Some people dont like to visit museum while on vacation, so this tip is not for you but if you do like museum, the Deutches museum is absolutely great.
Very big. 17 KM of gallery. It' s all about technology.
For a first-time visitor, Munich's grand Deutches Museum creates quite an impression (at least, it did for me). The museum is focused on 'technical' displays (such as models and dioramas) and showcases everything form railways to aqueducts to jet engines and so on ... I particularly enjoyed the vintage cars, pictured.
Many fascinating models, dioramas, displays, etc. Most exhibits also include detailed descriptions in German and English so that visitors can learn exactly how things work.
The Deutsches Museum is the Germans greatest technical museum and offers a lot of outstanding attractions.
You can visit a real mine in the basement, locomotives, cars, planes and real rockets ! It will take you a lot of time to see all, so you'll have to make a selection. At night you can visit the IMAX theater.
It's the biggest museum in Europe I think, dealing with science.
You'll find any information you want about physics, chemistry, time measuring, mining, music, pharmacy, biology, mathematics, motoring, electricity... and much more.
They have a Foucault-pendulum to prove the earth's movement, they show experiments with lightning in Faraday's cage - and they close too early!
The museum is open from 9 - 17 every day (even mondays!) and you simply MUST decide before you go what is the most interesting thing for you. You'll run out time whenever you go, even if you think beforehand, that you're not interested in science...
Spent an interesting day here, all things technical are covered, especially enjoyed the bridge building section and the aircraft. Recommend a visit here for anyone.
If you are a not-technical person too you will enjoy this. The different wings in this museum is just superb. Even one day is not sufficient. Go early in the morning. Ticket 7.50 Euro per person.
The Deutsches Museum has a actual ME 262! They also have a ME 109 and a ME 263. A V1flying bomb and many other displays. A must stop for WWII Fans.
Thanks to dannebro I now know the name of this museum. It has sooo much great stuff to see, I have the shortest attention span ever and I had a great time.
The Deutches Museum covers every aspect of technological history from its origins to the present day, and offers a multitude of hands-on displays plus huge collections of planes, boats and cars.
The 'Deutsche Museum' is a must for every technic freak. There are a lot of trains, airplanes etc. to have a look at!
Deutsches Museum - a definate must see
It is such a massive building, you probably need at least 2 days to go through the whole place, it is totally awesome
Perfect for a rainy day, a huge museum of technology, containing full size boats, planes, and trains.
