For a first-time visitor,...
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.
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.
The Deutsches Museum is the...
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.
A medley of museums
People tell me there are lots of great museums in Munich. I haven't been to any of them. But I imagine they are all small and rather crappy and over-hyped by the locals. I mean, I've been to a lot of major museums around the world - the British Museum, the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Tokyo National Museum, the Prado, the Gold Museum in Bogota, the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC. The Smithsonian. Alcatraz Island. The V&A. The Natural History museums in London and New York. The Maui Aquarium. I think the chances of me being impressed by anything that Munich has to offer are relatively slim. I just hope for your sake, if you plan on visiting one, that it's better than the Maltese Natural History Museum...

Some of the great museums in Munich, include The Schack Galerie, The Alte Pinakothek, The Deutsche Museum, located on the Isar island, fantastic technological museum, showing German achievements in Science and Technology. Another place not to miss, while in Munich is The Nymphenburg Palace.
Beautiful museums, expanding several centuries of Art and Technology.
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...
Laser show in the planetarium
The Munich planetarium next to the Deutsches Museum have laser shows with different musics. I visited the 'Pink Floyd' programme - they do hardtrance as well and a mixed programme with PetShopBoys etc.
It's a wonderful thing: you relax in your comfortable seat in the planetarium, listen to really good music surrounding you by powerful technic and over your head the stars are dancing, accompanied by colourful laserfigures and entertaining pictures... just great!

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.
The 'Deutsche Museum' is a must for every technic freak. There are a lot of trains, airplanes etc. to have a look at!
Messerschmitt ME 262
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.
