We visited the Museum for Science and Technology in Chicago last year and were very curios about this museum in Berlin. The museum is located in a pretty weird part of the down, behind railway tracks. But it was a nice atmosphere. I was a little disappointed in the size of the museum, since the one in Chicago kept us busy for almost an entire day, I guess I expected the same from this museum, although this was not the case, we spent around 3 hours in the museum, it was time very well spent. The vintage car exhibition was really nice!

It was interesting to wander through here, but certainly not the best technical museum we've been to. Not enough hands on stuff for the kids. Also, it seemed to be just a big collection of items, a little hard to follow.

Such a great range of exhibits - cars, trains, chemistry, beer brewing, photography, suitcase making, etc. I wish two things - that I'd allowed more than two hours to check it out, and that I'd gotten the English audio tour. Roughly two-thirds of the exhibits are signed in German and English both, but I'd have loved to get full benefit of the remaining third. Still, a totally worthwhile trip.

The museum curates the industrial, engineering and scientific past of Berlin exceptionally well. The buildings are a collection of old, new and reconstructed structures. the engine sheds for instance were rebuilt from the ground up to house and extensive collection of locaomotives old and new. The Douglas Dakota perched on the top of the museum is a link to the divided Berlin of the Cold War. This is a museum which contains far too much to take in in a single visit. There's extensive galleries covering maritime and aviation history with full sized exhibits on display as well as a myriad of scale models imaginatively displayed. There outdoor displays and car gallery as well as the chemical galeries remain unexplored which means a third visit is on the books. There is not much to dislike. Most of the exhibits have bilingual descriptions though typically for me, the trivial, least interesting things to most folk were the ones that had German only description and had maximum appeal to me! For a first time visit I'd recommend the big galleries: aviation, railway and maritime and mop up the smaller galleries on a subsequent visit,
