About
The Deutsches Museum presents another important part of its collections at Oberschleissheim Airfield in the north of Munich, close to the old Bavarian palace buildings. The airfield and its historic buildings were constructed between 1912 and 1919 by the Königlich-Bayerische Fliegertruppen (Royal Bavarian Flying Corps). In the early 1990s the historic maintenance hangar was restored and enlarged with a new exhibition hall and a restoration workshop. The Flugwerft Schleissheim complements the big aerospace exhibitions in the main museum in Munich.

Out of the way great place for air buffs

Shame it’s out of the way and out of the city center. For plane lovers this is the place in town. It’s usually very quiet, except for the occasional pre-COVID air show. Kids love it.

Small but worth visiting

Must visit for everyone who is in love with aviation. True jewels are German experimental VTOLs. An hour is enough to see it. And it is always pleasure to walk in the park nearby.

Hidden Gem for Flying Geeks
Oct 2019
It was an easy train ride out towards the Airport with a short walk down a nice road. The museum is pretty hidden down a quiet road but there are signs. The exhibits were very interesting to me and well kept. The facility was clean. There were not many people there while we were there and we were pretty much left to ourselves. Some great planes, including a well kept F4 Phantom like the ones I used to work on in the Air Force. From a Rocket to Gliders to helicopters and flight simulators. I enjoyed the German view of aviation. Most exhibits were German and English but a few were not. It took about three hours to get through and I thought it was well worth the time and money. The only negatives were that some of the exhibits were only in German, it's a 30 minute train ride, and I wish it had more Aircraft. I am glad I went and would recommend it to others.

Aviation museum with some unique craft
Sep 2019
I had just done basic research for this part of the trip; if it wasn't near the castles, I might not have discovered it. Easy access from the airport; 471, left turn for castle, drive through it, and there you are. Beautiful setting, especially along the lane adjacent the exhibition hall.
This facility represents German aviation first and foremost, covers a large time period and both sides of the wall. The original historic hanger covers mainly civilian and pleasure craft. Yaks to experimentals with Porsche engines, to a unique home build designed for flying a family over the wall.
The larger hanger covers the military, jet, and heavy experimental craft. Several are open for viewing, some walk through available. The Dornier Do31, a US X-plane, Panavia Tornado. Even classic craft from WW II, some of which were new for this US-based aviation buff. Even what has to be the ugliest aircraft ever; the Antonov AN-2.
Great job on the craft that have been restored, others you can tell are in varying phases of work. Not a lot of work going on, but it was nice being able t walk through the restoration hanger on the upper level.
I had no problem navigating the museum; most signage and display information was also in English. As you may see from photos, this facility is getting crowded with craft, especially on the military jet side. May be time for an expansion.

It is not that far. The S1 train for Munich airport stops at Oberschleissheim and it is just a 1.3km walk South through the Schloss. It is easy walking and cycling country. The museum is impressive with aircraft from the last 100 years plus. There are military and civil aircraft plus many aero engines and gliders. I note there was a Mig15, Mig 21, Phantom, Eurofighter, F104, F86, Me109, Heinkel 111, and a number of experimental jets for VTOL, including the X31.

Remote … but worth the trip
Apr 2019 • Family
Was I imagining it or were staff surprised to have visitors? And why wouldn’t they, the Museum is quite hard to get to. But it’s absolutely worth it. Brilliant assembly of things-that-fly and some that didn’t.
It’s located on the old Schleissheim aerodrome which would have been a fighter base in WW2. They’ve built a couple of new hangers for the displays. Flugwerft, I think is ‘hanger’.
To get there by train, take the S1 from Munich, bus 292 from the station, get off at Mittenheimerstraße and walk for 10 minutes. It's outside the Inner-zone so make sure you buy the right ticket.
If your other half is a bit reluctant to go to an aircraft museum, tell them they will almost walk by a Royal palace, better than Nymphenburg many say. Might work!

Not to be missed by any aviation enthusiast

What a great collection to be found just a few kilometers from Munich city centre. The exhibits range from the earliest gliders to some of the modern, iconic combat aircraft such as the Tornado and the Typhoon. Of particular interest is the VFW-614 which was used to develop FBW systems including for the A380 as well as the X31 used to test thrust vectoring.

Worth the visit
Dec 2018 • Solo
If you are an aviation enthusiast it is worth the trip; from Munich just hop on the Airport subway and then hop off in Schleissheim, from there you have either a 10 min safe and pleasant walk to the museum (or catch a bus, 2 stops). Only place where you can see a Do 31 or the two VFW VTOLs + there is apparently a H-24 Marut on display (according to the website) ; at the time of my visit it wasn't there nor was the Drakken

Less than an hours drive from Munich is an awesome airplane museum. The museum displays many unique items from Germanys history. Also on display are photos and stories of the airfield and how the museum came to be.
Well worth the time!
