If you like canons, weapons, bombs, tanks and all that this is worth a visit. If you're nog from Germany don't forget you're passport cause they need to check it before you are allowed to enter. There's military equipment from the early 1900's up to more modern weapons.

The official Bundeswehr collection. Very cool stuff and some rare finds. Excellent collection and a must-see for miltaria freaks. Collection is very well taken care of.

I have been to this Museum many times, the last just before Christmas last year. I had heard of this museum before my first trip to Europe in 1991 and it was the first of many military museums I have traveled to. Through the years the place has changed very little, I still keep coming back whenever I am in... More

A place to be for military enthousiasts. Collection of the weapon systems in service with the former Eastern- and Western-German armed forces as well as with today's Bundeswehr. One floor of artillery, one floor of machine guns, etc.

We visited this museum today and were amazed by the amount of predominantly German and East German military weaponry, some of which was developed for WWWI or WWWII. Our impression was that some of the weapons developed were technically brilliant but turned out to be impractical. All of the descriptions are in German, though luckily I was able to translate...

Great collection of recent and historical weapons. From planes and tanks to coding equipment, the museum covers almost anything military that can be squeezed into a building. Although the big equipment was amazing, my favorite piece was an actual enigma encoding machine. Be aware that there is very little English translation (many things were easy to pickout from the descriptions),... More

Quite hard to find as it is not shown on city map! We walked from centre, over one of the bridges and turned left! follow Mayener Strasse and look out for the large green boat and walk around to the front. ***We were asked for Passport ID, picture Driving License accepted, and you need 3 Euro coins for the turnstile...

A little tricky to find for us non german speaking visitors to find, building sign is off to the side and entrance is at the back. Very thorough collection; large ground floor with all sorts of heavy machinery (tanks, planes, helicopters, motorcycles, marine artillery and more). Three more floors filled with everything military including some more rare items scattered throughout.... More
