  • Trains, planes and automobiles! There is a lot to see here for everyone. While it may not require an all-day visit, it could take a while to thoroughly see everything -- like a Smithsonian American...  more »
  • An absolutely wonderful museum. Its very large and definitely needs more than one visit to do it full justice.I only gave ourselves 3 hours and only managed to see the New and Old buildings  more »
  • Great museum with English explanations. Too big to see all in one go but if you pick the parts you are interested in it makes a very good half day. The transport part is fascinating with trains...  more »

  • I bet it's great for German kids, however, being a tourist I didn't really enjoy it despite spending a good half of the day there. If you enjoy trains, sure, there are a lot of them, you can look inside most of them but it's not very interactive (there are scheduled demonstrations sometimes however). Absolute bulk of the information is in German, not many things you can interact with and we got there at a time when half of the new building was under maintenance. Almost all the interactive exhibits in Photo and Video industry were out of order. The most memorable part for us was the Sugar exhibition.
  • Beautiful and bigger than expected, unfortunately a lot of expositions where under construction and the brewery wasn't open for public. The view on the balcony was priceless and you can get a 2 for 1 discount what makes the trip very cheap. Many different themes are exposed, but it is not always clear what the expose, but still nice to just look at the evolution of (German) life. The light (inside the building) made it difficult to take clear/nice pictures
  • An excellent place to visit with the kids. We spent half a day here and felt it was a good amount of time to explore. That said, we barely explored the exhibits (separate building) as our kids (5 and 8) were most interested in the interactive centre. There were all sorts of different and creative exhibits, experiments and activities for the kids and us to engage in and enjoy. From water, electricity, light, music, sound and optical illusions... something for everyone.
  • Amazing museum. I have spent here 5 hours. I managed to see all buildings. Brewery is closed. A lot to see. Well designed. Comfortable. Wheelchair accessible. Toilets are plenty. Staff is polite and smiling. Good museum shop. The best technology museum in my list.
  • An engineers wet dream! A must see in Germany for any engineer. Trains, ships, planes, engines, jet engines and even rocket engines. Easily spent 3 hrs here and did not get to see all of it. Only critique is that only half of the exhibits have English translations, so for the other half I just had fun looking :)
