  • A great and huge museum to learn about different topics. Just in some parts English translation was not available and the design of the museum is a bit odd (We had to go back on our steps to get into the next floor). But it is a very nice place even to go with kids.
  • A very expansive science and technology museum... Definitely worth the visit. It was an interesting counterpoint to the London Science museum with a lot less crossover than you'd think. English support was mostly good with only a handful of exhibits not having English labels.
  • You can spend the entire day and then some in this place. Such an amazing museum. I appreciate the fact that they try to provide English translations when possible. A very nice touch that is appreciated because it is not a must. I look forward to returning.
  • Greta museum of technology and science! Lots of different areas, from electricity to physics, From airplanes to boats and ships, from chemical to space and planetary! Very interesting and funny the physics area where it is possible to experiment most of the physical law, such as magnetism, electricity, optic, motion and many other! Also the area of microelectronics is very interesting and full of experiment. It really worth a visit!
  • By far the best museum in Munich. I highly recommend a visit if you’re in Munich, it has some spectacular pieces. It’s quite big so if you’re in the habit of walking to museums and then walking around the museum, I recommend that you save your steps for the actual museum.
