It is a great museum even though it is hard to get to for international travellers. There is a great collection of planes, vintage cars ( probably the best I have seen), trains and tanks and a 3D cinema that is not to be missed. What my kids also enjoyed a lot is their playground which is more than a... More

We stop by on the way to Tripsdrill. The first thing that attracted our kids was the playground. They had fun before we went and bought tickets to visit the museum. There's a line if one wants to get in to either one of those planes to visit. I have to say that if you are afraid of height and... More

Europe's largest private technology museum. Spend the day. Climb into a Concord. Hundreds of race cars. Movies. Old machines. Too much to see in one day. Airplanes displayed as if flying, some hundreds of feet in the air.

Went there with our 6 year old son as an alternative to Mercedes museum. Seeing the inside of the planes was awesome. Many exhibits and a quite some interractive displays. It wasn't very good that they needed payment, but overall was worth it.

More mechanical items than you ever thought possible. Most fun, of course, is climbing in the Concorde airplane and then sliding down into the museum far below.

We visited the Sinsheim Museum this summer as a family trip with our two boys and had lot of fun. We previously visited the Speyer twin Museum a few years ago, and both museum are quite similar. In Speyer are the Concord and the "concord like" Tupolev, while Speyer has a 747 Jumbo and the Russian space shuttle. Both museum... More

I've been to a lot of aerospace and automobile museums and even NASA but I think this one is the best in the world. Mind boggling number of flights and automobiles and the way the museum is set up, the interactive nature and dead cheap price makes it unmatched. As an aerospace engineering student and even for other members of... More

We unfortunately had only 6 hours to spend here. I might suggest an entire day or even two days. It's mind boggling the amount of work involved in creating this museum. There is something here for almost anyone, trains, planes, cars and war memoriablia. It could even be worth a trip to Germany to it. We will certainly be returning... More

When my German friend said we are visiting a technical museum today, I was not very sure about the big thing. I was totally unaware about the vast area, vast layout and the huge spread the museum is having. Just fantastic. A well spread, well laid thing. Everything under one roof and yes over the roof too. From cycle to... More

This was my third time at the museum, but the first time with my children (ages 10 and 12). My children's favorite part was walking into the airplanes. Obviously, there is a wide variety of automobiles, plus some military vehicles and trains. It's best to visit the museum with someone who has the same interest level as you so it's... More
