  • those who are just interested in aviation history, should visit it. A replica of part of a travel Zeppelin is impressive.

  • The combination of technology and Art Museum I've seen anywhere else yet, but work in my opinion well.

  • In rainy weather it has quite a few visitors, but we could learn much Interssantes to airships and their development and era and there is well a few hours at the Museum. I won nothing from the separate exhibition of video artists. Very, I can recommend the visit to the Museum. With children who can't yet read, I would advise visitors but rather from the visit. The gift shop has a little selection of high-quality.

  • Really enjoyed the history of the Hindenburg. They also had some other art displays that was really designed to make you think. There is also an area that shows the structures and the science that was fun and educational. Combine all this with the location on lake Constance and the views of Switzerland and Austria and you have a great day.
  • If you visit Friedrichshafen, visit Zeppelin Museum. Friedrichshafen is the 'town' where they invented the Zeppelin Airship. You can feel in the Museum how the people travelled using Zeppelin across the Globus. They have model of the cabin where they sleep, the restaurant inside the gondola. You have a small souvenir shop where you can buy Zeppelin watch and many other items.
  • A fascinating look back at the development of Zeppelins at Friedrichshafen. The recreation of part of a Zeppelin is the glue that holds the display together and is encountered from all angles as you progress through the museum. For me the most interesting displays featured artifacts from the various dirigibles and the best of all was the mooring cone and anchorage from the Graf Zeppelin. Hard to imagine the scale of the aircraft that used to be connected to that. The only real criticism is the hit and miss provision of English translations on the labels and the lack of clarity in indicating which label went with each exhibit.
  • oh well.... I'm a huge Zeppelin fan... so this is a must. I love it and been here now the 3rd time. Especially the recreation of the Hindenburg deck is marvelous.
  • It is interesting but small. Maybe the tickets are a bit expensive for the quality of the museum. Most of the exhibition is only in German
