  • Very extensive exhibition very interesting and informative, the kids were thrilled, you can spend the whole day, we unfortunately do not have time, but the next time you visit Berlin, be sure to come back! Were in the days when museums admission is free, but even this did not create the impression of cramped, rooms spacious, everything is available.

  • Very interesting and complete Museum on technology, including on the machine tool, Aeronautics and railway. 2 buildings specially dedicated to the locomotives, steam to electronic trains. You will also see a deep. A pity however that explanations are only in German and sometimes English. Provide for minimum 2 h to 3 h on the spot.

  • Aviation section has very little English translation (few sentences next to entire paragraphs in German) and the focus is on propeller-driven aircraft with very few jet related exhibits. You can walk on the rooftop by the C-47B bomber which is nice. The computer and telecommunications sections were pretty cool. They have some demonstrations and interactive exhibits throughout the museum. The entire Beamtenhaus building (which houses chemicals and pharmacy as well as photography and film technology) was closed when I visited in December 2017. Price for student was €4 so I'd say it was worth a short visit.
  • I wasn't a big fan - a lot of the descriptions were in German only or only with a super short English version. A lot of the interactive displays in the Movies and Photography sections didn't work. The New Building was the most interesting since it houses the Shipping and Aviation exhibitions, which show incredible boats and planes, but again with very few descriptions in English (if you are looking for English texts, look for touchscreens). The science centre Spectrum in the nearby building was a much better experience. If you don't feel like spending your whole day in the Technical Museum, head straight for Spectrum.
  • Definitely worth a visit. Good for kids and adults altogether. The museum is huge and it is unlikely that you will see everything in one day. New building with cars exposition and one about "Network", that was really interesting! I will visit it again to check the old building too. Nice staff and there is a small place to eat.
  • Absolutely outstanding museum. For non German speaking visitors, id advise taking advantage of any translation/guide services available as we missed a lot of information without them. The pieces on display are incredible particularly the aerospace and photography departments. Went with 87 year old man with no problems encountered with seating ir accessibility. A great day out.
  • Loved it. You can spend here days of exploring all the corners. Take a bit of time with you as just an hour or two won't be enough time to even see one category completely. So much love for detail and everything is high quality.
