This building is full of interesting exhibits incorporating historical and technological developments. From mathematics and computers, mapping and surveying to sailing ships and space travel. Start on the top floor and work your way down. The internet café on the top floor is quiet and elegant with lovely pastries. Kids of all ages will enjoy the "mathematical cabinet" next to... More

My husband and I went to the museum on a rather hot day. There was no AC and much of the exhibits had very little English translation. He is an engineer so he really enjoyed seeing some of the exhibits that wouldn't have been seen in the U.S. The museum is huge and we only went on a few floors... More

If you have children age 8-16 visit this museum. Unfortunately only german language is used there. But you can enjoy the amazing views. Go to Ships , Airplanes & Ziess planetarium.

We visited on a rather warm day in Munich - 35 degrees - and found the museum to be very stuffy and warm with very little air circulation. However it is worth a visit for anyone who is interested in the history of science and technology! They have a mind boggling collection of exhibits which will appeal to just about... More

This museum is beyond massive – it contains just about everything related to the history of science and technology. As you'd never get round it all in a day, I'd suggest looking at the map first and deciding in advance which sections you want to visit. One thing which limited my stay, though, was the suffocating lack of air quality... More

A large portion of this museum is devoted to technology and its evolution. Great display of airplanes, computers, etc. I also enjoyed the musical instruments collection.

The German Museum is quite similar to the US Smithsonian Institution for Science & Technology/Aerospace. There was little on history, natural history, or culture. It was a first rate technology experience. The museum has an impressive collection of full sized smaller ships, smaller models of ships and a cutaway section of U-Boat #1. The sections on electronic and computers was... More
