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.

I was in Munich for three days last month on vacation, and this was one of my stops. I am a private pilot who likes airplane museums.

The museum is just north of Munich, perhaps a 15-20 minute ride on the S1 train. When you arrive at the train station, the museum is about a 10-15 minute walk which is fairly well marked. (Once you get on the road about 250 yards from the station, it is a straight long walk.) It is an easy walk in a mostly residential area, with no real hills, just 10-15 minutes of walking.

The museum is located on a long used grass airport (thus the name), I think dating back to WWI.

The museum has a varied collection of mostly US and German aircraft. I would estimate that there are 75-100 airplanes total. They range from early flight and general aviation, to post cold war military jets. They also have a huge collection of piston and jet engines.

I was surprised to see a Sikorsky helicopter being restored in their shops, but it makes sense because the field (Flugwerft Schleisheim) was a training base for these helicopters during the cold war.

If you are really into airplanes, this is a decent stop to make in Munich if you have time.

I got to know about this place whilst I was checking out the Deutsches Museum. If you happen to go to the Deutsches Museum, they usually give a free entrance ticket (when you pay the entrance ticket to the Deutsches Museum) to any other musueum that forms part of the Deutsches Museum and this Flugwerft Schleissheim is one of them :)

The museum itself contains war planes that were built by Germans doing WW2, planes that served in the German Airforce like the mighty MIG's , the Eurofighter test bed plane, the Tornado, the Phantom and much more....

Take S1 and stop at Oberschleißheim. Then just walk to your right for about 15 minutes and you reach the entrance. You cannot miss it as there are signs every where. If you go during the week, there is a public bus that takes you almost next to the entrance, but if you go during the weekend like myself, the bus for some reason does not work, thus walk it...

Our family including 3 children aged 12,10 and 4 had an excellent afternoon here a few days ago. It's a relatively small museum but quite comprehensive, taking about 2 hours to do properly. The exhibits are very well presented and you can get very hands on - getting into the aircraft and having a proper look at what it would have been like to be a fighter pilot for example. The staff were pleasant and the venue itself has an interesting history.

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.

The museum is quiet and well laid out with an amazing range of aircraft from the past years of German aviation. There is also a restoration hall where you can view the work in progress. The museum is about 10-15 minutes walk from Obersclheßheim S Bahn stop, a walk that takes you through the grounds of Obersclheßheim palace.

whilst this is not the largest aviation museum in the world it does have some interesting curios, I didn't know before my visit that the Germans also had a stab at making a Vertical take of fighter as well as a VSTOL cargo plane examples of both are housed here. they have an interesting selection of early German aircraft and sail planes and also a good cross section of post war jets used by both the West and east German airforce's. The history of the air field was well presented and I found this the most interesting, but in common with other branches of the Deutsches museum, the inclusion of parallel translations of the exhibits information is somewhat random, there is certainly enough to keep your interest but it is lacking from some of the more interesting exhibits. Still it is much more comprehensive than the translations found in Uk museums for overseas visitors.

Quite far out of city and need to take S1 , S-Bahn to get there and then about a 15 min walk , but straight route with sign posts (current map location in Tripadvisor wrong as of 29th April 2014, but have reported it) - museum website gives good info on transport links and directions .

Good exhibits and well laid out - worth the visit.
