But even they get big eyes there. Nearby the Schleissheim Castle you find this branch of the Deutsche Museum with focus on the world in the air ! Even persons not really interested in technical things will have a nice time there.

A very good place to visit if you love the planes.. You will get to see the planes of old times and also the have the experience of sitting in the cockpit and fly a plane. It is little far away from the station if you going by train. Still it is fine.

This location has gone through many changes in its life. The story of the airfield is very interesting. The displays are varied to tell the story of flight in many different aspects. Some of the items have been relocated from the main museum within the last few years. A good place to spend a couple of hours.

A great museum, beautifully situated, with lots and lots of historical planes. Although we didn't have any children come along, from what we understood there are also many activities every now and then, related to aviation for smaller ages. Great stuff!!!!!

My husband is a pilot, so we decided to spend a weekend afternoon at this museum. There was also a fly-in and airplane rides taking place that day. We took the S train from Munich, which required about 15 minutes of walking from the train station to the museum - not a tough walk, but a bit long on such... More

Don't miss it! You can learn a lot about the history of airplanes and their engines. You can see original famous airplanes and even (parts) of rockets. A great place to have fun for kids and adults.

This was an excellent place to spend a couple of hours with my grandsons on a cold and damp day. The exhibits are really well displayed and labelled and there are enough 'hands on' exhibits to keep children entertained (and out of the shop!) for most of the time. My one regret is that the helicopter simulator was not open... More
