  • 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.

  • Great museum, with beautiful presentations. 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. The only drawback is that most explanation panels are in German only. Even so, the museum is very enjoyable. As a side note, when we ordered soy-based hot chocolate for our daughter, who's allergic to milk, the attendant was so careful she even checked the cocoa-powder (which did include some dairy). It's just one of those small things that make you appreciate the place and visit even more.
  • This is the greatest museum I know. It has a wide range of technical and scientific exhibitions. The highlights are the detailed mining exhibition with authentic replications of historic mines and the modern airplanes with helicopters and jets. Unfortunately the airplane exhibition is under renovation until 2020. It featured marvels like the Me 262, the first jet airplane. Besides that there are great exhibitions of ships, historic airplanes, steam machines, electricity and much more. In addition there are also temporary exhibitions.
  • This is a massive museum, and several exhibits are quite interactive. One day is not enough to see it all! The aerospace/naval rooms had life-size replicas of many historical vehicles, and I think it had an authentic WWII German u-boat with the wall removed so you could see inside. The alternative energy exhibit was very interesting, and the kids loved cycling on a stationary bike - as you pedal faster, you can energize more powerful devices. We also visited a huge replica mine - the air was a bit stuffy but there were countless displays about mining history and methods. We ate at the cafeteria, which was a bit pricey but the food was good. The salad bar was probably the most cost effective. Not all exhibits had English translation, unfortunately, and several of the interactive displays had broken buttons so you couldn't work them all, but I'd still highly recommend this when visiting Munich.
  • The museum is very interesting but some of the exhibits have gotten old and need renovation. The scale and depth of the exhibition is amazing. Especially the mining exhibition and the electricity show alone are worth coming here. We also liked the cave paintings and generally the historical depth. However, most of the museum would need more guidance and explanation about the significance of the exhibits and the world view they transported during their time period. All that being said this is definitely a place worth visiting.
  • An excellent place to spend a few hours. Great place for children with many interactive exhibits and buttons to press. Also a wide variety of exhibits across all the sciences and modern history. Some parts only open at certain times so it's worth checking, but it avoiding those times also means avoiding the crowds. My husband and I had a very enjoyable visit.
