The museum is very interesting as it tells the history pf Zeppelins. It is interactive and you can see a reproduction of a real one. However, some explanations and signs are only in German which makes it a bit long and boring for non-german speakers.

A interesting place with good information and a view in to how a Zeppelin was adapted. When in Friedrichshafen you need to go there.

Really well laid out museum, impressive little demo stations set up around the museum, a must to see. Couldn't believe the size of these aircraft, they were enormous.
