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

Well this is the one I'd been wanting to visit for something like twenty years. What can you say - it's another collection of cars and planes and stuff. I paid to visit here with my Speyer entry which I think saved me a couple of euros. Two halls, at least 1000 exhibits, I took @ 800 photos so it's... More

Spent a whole afternoon here last Saturday with friends and it truly is a great museum, if you like the above things. The displays could do with a few more translations into English, but that is a minor quible. Great collection & very good value for money.

Something for young and old, plan at least 2 days or come back multiple times. There is an abundance of cars, trains, airplanes, machinery, boats, tanks, guns, historical dioramas, and, and, and. Many hands-on experiences for kids. And if you like it , drive about an hour east to Speyer, where the sister museum has more stuff.

Ok, so traveling with a auto fan husband and a fifteen year old daughter, I thought this might be just a day where we gritted our teeth for our beloved male. However, there was such a variety of displays that we all found something to interest us. All the kids there seemed to love the fact that you could descend... More

Very informative . Make sure you have several hours available to see it all! Movies are great, lots of was memorabilia, the best are the planes. Make sure you visit the sister museum as well, with a mock space shuttle!

This is one of the world's best aviation museums. The other one is in Speyer - a partner museum to Sinsheim. Everything is spectacular: the number of exhibits the ability to walk into many of the planes the installations - very camera friendly and spectacular for the setpiece exhibits the children's adventure playgrounds It's worth doing a day trip to...

There is so much to see in this museum that really you need to spend a whole day or maybe more. It is very impressive with everything from bicycle's to heavy artillery guns and has some working exhibits. Well worth a trip
