This is a must for any military enthusiast. 5 levels of floor to ceiling military history, including an original Enigma machine. I'm not even a military enthusiast, and I found this place incredible. In each section, some of the equipment is cut open so you can see the inner workings, including an entire tank cut down the middle. Uniforms, helmets,... More

Allow as much time as you have: this is an excellent must-see for anyone interested in military history and technology. Note: this is not a museum per se. The collection is kept and maintained by an office of the German federal defense ministry as a learning, training and development resource. Yes, it's open to the public, but it's very much... More

This military museum is not the easiest place to find by foot but well worth the effort. There dont appear to be any signs giving directions but if your driving and have a sat nav it shouldnt be a problem. €3 entrance fee, well worth it. So much to see but if dont read German it could be a problem... More

I spent only 1,5 hours there, but I recommend much longer. There are different floors open for public visit, including more than you can imagine: tanks, Vehicles, plane, submarine, technical equipment, uniforms, and a full floor of light weapons from 1800's to future! Have to mention the prototypes you might won't see in other places or movies. It deserves so... More

3 euro in coins is required to gain access through the turnstiles, and pack your passport - it was a condition of entry when we visited, Museum is now almost fully opened, only a few small sections remained under renovation when we visited. Temporary toilets are in the car park area by the entrance if you need to make a... More

The museum has a wide collection of military history. It has many tanks and artillery pieces from WW2. A few planes, helicopters and transport vehicles. They do have some steps available to allow viewing inside which makes a difference. Unfortunately it was not fully open as the small arm weapons were not available to see. Make sure you take enough... More

Half the museum has been closed for a time. The good news is completion of the work is supposed to happen the end of Oct. The bad news for me was I was there the end of Sept. It is currently free, this will end also end of Oct..

Quite good collection of prototypes and equipment I've never heard of. I did not have very high expectations when we walked in the door, but I was wrong! This is an unique collection of planes, helicopters, drones, engines, guns and vehicles. Many of them that I never heard or read about. We used over two hours here and that was... More

A difficult to find but very well kept museum. Didn't contain anything particularly unique from other German War Museums but, nevertheless, was worth visiting. It also contained a very comprehensive collection of firearms the scale of which I saw nowhere else. Would definitely recommend it to people who haven't been to many other of the war museums Europe has to... More
