We visited the Museum on a rainy day but it's worth a visit any day. This museum is huge! Everything from cars to airplanes, science exhibits, musical instruments, mining, etc. Wish I had more time there.

Huge range of things to see - cant see it all in one visit. Sadly we were looking forward to the astronomy part which is suppoed to be good but it is closed for refurb at the moment.

The first time I visited it I decided to become a member for the whole year. Since then I visit it quite often. I love it. If you like science, technology, engineering... this is your place.

Since everything closes on Sundays in Europe i went there on a Sunday and it was nice and quiet. we got to walk around and check out the different exhibitions, although not all of them. Don't let the outer building fool you it's really huge and if you have kids and they found out about the basement where the kid's... More

It is one of the most impressive museums in Germany. If you want to see it all you need a whole day. But it is worse it if you are into science. I will visit this place again. I highly recommend this museum.

On our rainy first day in Munich, we needed an indoor activity- well, this was it! It is VERY deceiving in that you wouldn't think that it would take you like 3 days to cover all the exhibits but when we left 3 hours later, we felt like we missed stuff..and we walked the ENTIRE time from exhibit to exhibit!!!

Amazing science museum covering soup to nuts. My teenaged son and I spent 2 1/2 hours here starting just after opening (avoiding some serious lines, which were there when we left). I suspect we covered maybe 20%. If you like this sort of thing, plan on an entire day.

Best science and technology museum I have ever seen. One day is not enough to see whole museum. good thing is this museum is free from 4 to 5 PM everyday, hence one can make plan to see one section in one day.

Excellent collection of all kinds of vehicles from different era. Trains, trams, racecars, motorcycles, even roller skates are there and all are very well maintained. I was delighted to see the tata nano car is here. It is definately a must see attraction of munich
