  • 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.

  • This museum has some amazing exhibits, especially their industrial machines. Unfortunately, they don't really provide any background information about them or even say what they are useful for. They also don't have air conditioning, which makes it especially sweaty on upper floors in the summer. The gift shop is second-to-none, with an incredible selection of intriguing items, although I don't know that any were particular to this museum's exhibits. The cafeteria is nice, but you will have to put up with smokers if you want to sit outside, even if you sit in the non-smoking section; they will smoke anyway.
  • One of the best museums I have visited! Even if you are not a science enthusiast, you can definitely have something to see. Topics range here from electronics and computers, to minerals and mining, from astronomy to mechanics, chemistry, from energy science to biology. Prepare yourself with at least 3-4 hours. The good part is, that you have a restaurant where you can take a break.
  • Covering every major science with focus on engineering and technology. Some might find it too detailed, I felt it was just right on par with London Science Museum. There's plenty to spend a day in and prices are reasonable. Food in restaurant is good and drinks (beer, coffee) priced OK. Getting there is easy, parking not so. As always - if you can use public transport. If not there is paid parking spaces along the river and weekends are free. There are also a few public car parks nearby, some may be used for markets on Saturday.
  • Honestly the biggest Museum I've ever seen by a large margin. It's basically covers every type of historical information in the last 2-300 from physics over to astrology to wood working. I was impressed by the amount of detailed input but it honestly just way too much for a person to digest. It will take 3-4h just to look at everything without going too much into detail. Nonetheless the prices are pretty low for the amount of content you can view. 5/5
  • Huge museum covering an immense amount of technical solutions and inventions covering everything from mining to astronomy. The museum is divided into eight floors and simply walking through a single floor easily takes an hour - without going into any kind of details. Truly exploring the museum would take at least a week! Only fly in the ointment is that a lot of items are only described in German. Entrance costs 12€ (4€ for kids and students).
