A great museum about 10 min drive from Munich, on an old German Luftwaffe base. We loved it, great exhibits and planes and very hands on. Many planes we would never see at a Museum in the US. Be sure to see the whole museum including the repair hangar and the big hangar we almost missed since it was in... More

I'm not overly interested in planes but hubby wanted to check them out and I wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle so this was a definite win. It was really easy to get to and was really quiet throughout our visit. A really nice change from the madness of Marienplatz. I think it was around 6 euros... More

I got to know about this place whilst I was checking out the Deutsches Museum. If you happen to go to the Deutsches Museum, they usually give a free entrance ticket (when you pay the entrance ticket to the Deutsches Museum) to any other musueum that forms part of the Deutsches Museum and this Flugwerft Schleissheim is one of them...

leave your hotel at least 3 hours before to be able to get S1 to arrive @ the airport on time. Due to the fact that it is not very clear to know ahead which terminal you should go to.

Good exhibits and well... More

This annex to the Deutsches Museum is a bit far off the central by any public transport but easily accessible with a car (free parking). It contains two main exhibition halls and some smaller items in between those two, and an additional hangar where the staff performs restoration works on the planes (currently a MiG-23 was there).. For entrance I... More

Located on an early Luftwaffe base (also where US Helicopters were based during Vietnam), this a great collection of some very unique and interesting planes. A focus on VTOL technology is also a welcome highlight.

It is about half an hour drive from Munich main city or about 15 minutes drive from BMW museum. I was told that the location was an old airport. That's why it is away from town and the location is actually quite hidden. But there are road signs on the way to the muzeum. It is hard to get taxi... More

Our family including 3 children aged 12,10 and 4 had an excellent afternoon here a few days ago. It's a relatively small museum but quite comprehensive, taking about 2 hours to do properly. The exhibits are very well presented and you can get very hands on - getting into the aircraft and having a proper look at what it would... More
