  • The Technology museum in Berlin is huge. It is very hard go around the whole museum in one day. It is better to plan to see one part at the time. It is great for kids to visually experience history of...  more »

  • One of the best Museums in Berlin. Had fun with my language school classmates on a rainy day and the museum was half full so we got to see a lot of inventions and extraordinary equipments used in the past. Probably you'll need more than a day to see everything!
  • Huge place, great train locomotives. My favourite part was to jump on the historic train and taking a ride to sneak into the otherwise hidden from public Depot. Unfortunately this special audience offer is only available on Sundays in September. All photos taken inside the Depot.
  • This is the most interesting museum in Berlin. Trains, planes, boats, motors, bicycles, motorcycles, cameras, engines, engineering systems, spy equipment, all are here. Give yourself a good few hours to wander around this brilliant museum. We also had lunch in the little restaurant. You can easily spend a day here!
  • This is possibly the best Museum I have ever been too. "The Netz" permanent section is amazing - better than comparable one-off exhibitions I've seen in London. This place is truly amazing. You need a whole day to do just the boats or just the planes. It should be top of all the guide books! Everyone should go here!!
  • One of the best museums I ever had luck to visit. You cannot see everything in just one day. If you have time restrictions - choose one section closest to your interests and go with it. I think I could write a book based on my emotions from the aviation section alone. The museum combines human stories, the effects of technology on our society with real, iconic hardware. Pieces of planes shot down during the WWII are an eerie reminder of violent past of the very place museum stands upon. The old museum/fairground was partly destroyed in a bombing raid during WWII. If you like planes, ships, trains, printing, photography, history, IT, human endeavor and pioneer spirit or just are a curious soul...don't miss this museum! I had zero expectations and was truly amazed by complexity and the size of the collection.
