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.

It is a very nice museum for aviation-lovers of all ages. Here you may see a lot of real planes, including very old ones, and even genuine space missile. The venue is very spacious, calm and peaceful.
Tip: You are sure to spend half a day here, so some sandwiches in your pocket may be useful. We were starving after museum tour, but there were no working cafes or restaurants around - in the afternoon they all were closed.

This is a neat airplane museum built on a historic airfield just outside of Munich. It is kind of like a smaller version of the Smithsonian's Air Space Museum near Washington Dulles International Airport. Many of the aircraft are Cold War vintage. After your visit, there is also a beautiful palace grounds next door.

A very varied collection of aeroplanes and helicopters. A few rare machines that aren't easy to find in museums. Collection focuses on pre-WW II and post-WWII.
The history of the airfield is also well described.
Descriptions are quite good; in German and English.

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.

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.

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.

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.
