  • Read the reviewers decided that the Deutsches Museum is a place of compulsory to visit Munich. Paid for 12 euros per person for entrance. On this positive emotions. That did not like: 1) immediately on entering you understand that hit not in the Museum and in kindergarten or elementary school. Children simply an INCREDIBLE amount. They all scream, squeal. The mood from the constant noise and Gama gone bad and desire to walk through the Museum immediately dropped out. 2) all exhibits with information in English and German languages. The day before were in Dachau, where Memorial for 4 Euro gave Russian language, which includes an audio guide. You come up here to exhibit and what to do with it and what it means is absolutely not understandable. 3) huge areas. For an hour we did not pass even one floor and there is 7! Conclusion-if you have extra money, time to kill and you not besyat children and their squeals, then you can go to the Museum. In all other cases, it is better to choose the lesson more interesting and cheap.

  • Been last in the study in the DM. The quality of the exhibition this time was better than in my childhood. Now after 20 years of tight, it looks totally run down. Old presentation technique, yellowed and broken clean - simply awful. The control system impertinence and ridiculous for a National Museum. CI? wrong! It doesn't deserve the DM. Try using the children's area to entertain children under 10 years of age. But outside, it will quickly get bored children. May be you should admit that a technology museum after 10 years will be interesting. The bistro is an another low point. There is trying to pull the money out of your pocket the people with a useless plastic container deposit system. Who has no time to be again at the box office or in absence of the language not understood 2 euro deposit for a piece of plastic to pay, loses his money. Shabby! The sanitary facilities in the area are shabby. To me reason enough not more to go.

  • If you like museums, you can not miss this. Navigation, aviation, electricity, there are up to the recreation of a mine. You will see up to a German submarine as well as reproductions of boats and planes and models of many boats. It is suitable for all ages. Although much time is needed to see it also you can select those areas that we like most. The cafeteria is pretty good and you can eat almost anything. The prior is 14 euros.

  • The technology sections, such as mobility (aircraft, planes, etc.) is especially beautiful with many live-scale models of vessels, planes, and so on. The physics 'hands on' section is also one of the best I've visited, and includes several live demonstration by the museum staff. Rarely visited such a good museum! Something for EVERYONE, no matter what you like. from the technology side, really great! Different things on the spot and an incredible amount to try for yourself. Unfortunately, the chemistry is missing. The best idea in the heavy current range! student prices and digital guides in multiply languages are available The only drawback is that most explanation panels are in German only. Even so, the museum is very enjoyable.
  • Huge and interesting museum containing lots of topics. It may took more than 5 hours to finish the museum so you better plan your trip according to that. First thing you noticed about this museum is the huge crowd waiting to enter. However, if you don't want to wait for line, just take online ticket and wait only for entrance ticket check. There are several lockers and checkroom. You should lose all unnecessary things on you otherwise you will carry them for a quite time. There are several floors and sections in the museum for different topics from mining, mechanics, physics, computer, boats, nanotechnology and list goes on. You should make a plan otherwise you might get lost or miss lost of parts. There are lots of specifications and examples of working principle of many gadgets in the museum. Although some of them are out of order when I was there. In addition some sections doesn't have description with English which is quite sad as you may interested but there is only description in German(if you have audio then no problem). Some sections of the museum is unnecessarily huge such as boat part. After a certain time you may bored with seeing boat models. There are several canteens for food however, the lines are so long it took 30 minutes to buy a water so it is better to bring supplements with you. There is a quite view of Munich from the terrace as well. In summary, the museum is huge and informative and must see place for kids too.
  • Very nice museum, nice kids area. Parking wasn't to bad if your willing to walk a bit to get there. We had a enjoyable 10 minute walk along the river. There are a number of ships to see and a hall of machines. The price was more than reasonable for the visit.

  • A beautiful museum close to the heart of Munich. Beside of the botanical garden this is one of my favorite places. The biggest inventions as well as the history of Germany can be seen. Also, the German Museum offers a stunning variety of exhibitions, which switch through from time to time. I can only recommend to go there if you find a little extra time.
