  • The Museum is housed in an architecturally beautiful building. The exhibits are impressive. Many old original parts. A replica of a part makes it possible for the Hindenburg to empathize in the former way of travelling. The wreckage show what must have ruled for a tremendous heat during the disaster. It are very carefully designed bag sizes. Too much baggage lockers available are on a deposit but. So 2-3 hours you should schedule in any case for the visit. I recommend film with the 11minütigen at the beginning of the show to start. You can park in the parking garage "around the corner". If you buy something at Edeka still for €5 will be paid an hour parking time.

  • An unusual Museum in the middle of the city. Also, who is not the type of Museum, it's worth to take a look in the Zeppelin Museum. You teach know the beginnings of aviation, and the progress of the Zeppelin. You can see also a reproduction of the Interior of the Zeppelin. It is great that even today the zeppelins in the air are in Friedrichshafen.

  • Museum a must for lovers of aviation history and fans of airships. Copious material and well exposed and the only flaw is the very presence of descriptions in English and/or French. You can compensate with the audio guide but a little more consideration for non-German speakers would be something pleasant. Overall, it's an attraction that is well worth the trip to get there.

  • This place is pretty interesting. It details the history of the Zeppelin and even features a partial mock-up of a full sized Zeppelin. The entire museum can be seen in 1-2 hours. There are a lot of high quality models on display and some educational displays as well. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in flight and is in the area.
  • A snazzy museum with a modern style that chronicles the history of the Zeppelin airship that had it beginnings in Friedrichshafen. The spacious museum has a good collection of artifacts and reproductions related to the airship—including a full-size replica of a portion of the Hindenburg which stretches over three floor levels. The reproduction provides a look at the ships sleeping quarters, lounge, communications room and even the provides a look at the colossal inner structural elements of the massive craft. I would have expected more artifacts and reproductions but this somewhat minimalistic approach with lots of open space follows the current trend in museum design. Information in both German and English is provided on most displays. Lockers for bag storage is also available for visitors. A small but well stocked gift shop is situated off the main entrance (and exiting the museum does not necessitate traipsing through the shop like so many museums).
  • Very fascinating museum with lot of interesting material from the Zeppelin era on show. The museum features also a collection of vintage cars focusing on the history of 'speed'. Definitely worth visiting.
  • Great little museum with a zeppelin of course. It's not a big museum but very interesting
  • amazing place to discover the history of Zeppelin. I suggest to buy the kombo ticket with Dornier Museum.
