This is the third of the three museums in the Deutsche Museum chain in/near Munich, the other two being the famous Deutsche Science museum in downtown Munich and the transport museum in southwestern Munich. Like the other two museums, this one is excellent, and like the other two museums it is also very large. If you have any interest at... More

For those who have an interest in aircraft, particularly WW2, then this museum is a "must see". Up close to a Messerschmitt 262 and 109. They have a Comet too. Lots more to fill a two hour visit. Then walk round the corner to the beer garden - perfect!

Very interesting museum, lots of information on the history of the airfield and military aviation in Germany, most but not all of the information boards are in English. There are lots of aircraft on display, some of which you can go inside. My only criticism is that the main exhibition hall is predominantly glass with little ventilation, and became very... More

If you are interesested in aviation, then you must visit. The place was "occupied" by the US Army at various periods, including during the Cold War: there the US trained its Helicopter pilots at the height of the Viet Nam war. Even today you can get private helicopter flight training....if you have the time and the money of course.

As an aviation enthusiast, this was a satisfying day out. We walked from the station - a distance of about one mile. The museum is based in the operational building of a World War 1 airfield and covers aircraft and exhibits from the dawn of aviation up to the present day. Several rare or unique aircraft were on display and... More

I'm a plane lover, so when we decided to visit this museum, I was very excited. I wasn't disappointed. You can find the history of the aviation before the wars, and also about commercial planes, but there is also an Europa orbital carrier rocket. So if you have a passion regarding planes or history just visit it.

This museum gives a good glimpse of pre- and after war aviation in the area. Many airplanes on display. Recommended.

Like Duxford in England, the museum combines restoration with the display of historic flying machines. There are periodic changes of themed displays. The last visit coincided with an exhibition of Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) projects based around the amazing Dornier Do.31 passenger transport. The site was originally a training base for German flyers in the Great War, became... More

Fascinating museum with a brilliant range of exhibits, old and new with good information in German and English which we appreciated - definitely worth the long walk from the railway station.
