We had a 4 day break in Munich with the guide book recommending the Deutsches Museum. It is large and there are a few modern exhibits (eg biochemical and environmental). However the majority is very old fashioned with dull displays in lines and lines of cases. We stumbled across a live playing of some musical instruments (good) but this was... More

This is the best Museum I have visited. My family and I got taken by surprise by the share size of this museum. One big thing is that you can try, touch and interact with many things. I did not realize until I was there how big this Museum is, if you intend to visit go online and do some... More

College age sons & husband wanted to visit this museum and I was dragged along. Wow, a German submarine in the middle of the museum, rockets, airplanes-, an entire ship? Motor cars, drilling rigs, power tools, all sorts of simulators -- am I in the Smithsonian by mistake? This is great for all ages young to old, can go at... More

Great displays all around, including nautical craft from bronze age on. Downstairs is a U boat that's been opened to reveal its inner workings. A V2 missle penetrates a spiral staircase. A Messerschmitt Me 262, the world's first jetplane, is housed in the aeronautics section. Great view of the city from the roof too.

I'm fascinated by technology so I loved this place I could have spent days looking round and a fortune in the shop. Highlights include a coaster from the days of sail several aircraft including an Me109 (cf Battle of Britain) and the first "U" boat U1 which has been cutaway to show what's inside

We were tired and so was the museum. They close promptly at 5. We rushed over on our last day and hoped to get a bite at their cafe for a late lunch which was already closed (3:00). I work in aviation so I mainly wanted to see the original Wright Flyer and the remnants of Otto Lilienthal's original glider.... More

This museum is one of my favorites I visited in Europe. I was with three friends, all men, and one in particular was not a museum goer. This museum kept us entertained for over four hours, and that with none of us reading or speaking any German. We had a ton of fun, and even debated going back the next... More

I enjoyed this museum, though it seemed extremely dated. It was more of a "this is what science was like in 1990" museum. However, they are slowly refurbishing it, and there was an excellent collection of Aircraft to gawp at.

This is a must visit place in Munich specially if you are a technology & history admirer. It takes almost 2-3 days to visit the complete Museum. There are different sections based on everyone's interest from Physics, Chemistry, Metallurgy, Automobiles etc. You will completely get lost in the world of science & would be amazed to see this place..
