  • According to the map make together a program for himself and the day. Experimental ability makes it interesting also for young people. Interesting and very well understand pharmaceutical exhibition.

  • My first time at the Museum of science and technology in Munich I was 7 years old and I was fascinated. Because it's not just a museum where you look at things that are exposed, but apply personally, with the principles of physical buttons for example, then the cars, planes, mines played so well that you forget to be in a museum. Not to mention the Hall of model railway and the presentation, at set times, high tension where lightning and reproduce the effect with the faraday cage. A museum suitable for children, aged 7 years for sure but if particularly "scientific" as well, and although the museum itself is very large, has so many attractions that will complain a little. Recommend it to everyone!

  • Biggest museum of science and technology in the world. Huge variety of topics covered with many interactive exhibits. The reproduction of the mining tunnels in the underground is awesome! Both children and grownups can enjoy spending a couple of hours in this engineering heaven... Definitely worth the price of the ticket!
  • I was completely blown away at how awesome and big this museum is! You'll certainly want to allocate plenty of time to see it all in one day (about 4+ hours to thoroughly see everything). It has exhibits on every scientific and manufacturing field you can think of! Everything from ironwork, to glass, energy, and mining! The coolest part is going to the lower level and walking through the mine facsimiles to see how mining has evolved with the advancement of technology! This is definitely a place to stop when in Munich!
  • If you're interested in physics, technology, engineering, etc, then plan for over 3-4 hours. Great museum with a wide range of content. Most of the exhibits have English translations, but some of the newer ones don't. There are also interactive exhibits for kids and adults. Be sure to catch the electric power show. Times are on the wall, but try to stand against the back wall near the "houses"
  • Very good meusem of natural sciences. It is the biggest museum of natural sciences on the world. You should spend the whole day to visit all exhibitions. I think even one day is not enough. There is very interesting museum shop. It is better to buy tickets online
  • Unfortunately it was a great deception. Every exhibition we wanted to see does not exist any more (physics light and the pendulum rotating over the day), the physics experiments were poorly calibrated so the conclusions were not precise and crispy as expected. Many experiments are broken and the instructions on what is happening were also misleading or completely missing. A shame, I knew it much better from the past.
