  • Technical museum with deep dives into different areas. There's many more than can be explored in one visit, so it's useful to focus on one or two that strike your fancy. My personal favourite is The Mine. Suitable for adults and children alike (though not all parts are equally interesting to younger age groups).
  • Mining is amazing but not for the unfit Shipping is good. Machines were great. Toys were small but amazing I was disappointed on flight. For a country with a history of aviation they could have done so much better Great Museum. Cheap for what you get Warning if you do not read German the English signage is limited. But better than German signs in any British Museum I loved my visit
  • Amazing!! I was so excited. And my kids were so so happy to see everything. They would not stop saying "wow. Look at this. And this and this." This is the best place to bring kids and happy adults for several repeat trips
  • Amazing museum full of very interesting exhibits for all interests and all ages. The interactive room at the end of the tour let's you build your own going away gift, we got to solder our own circuit board in the shape and design of the museum logo, the owl 🦉, which was such an amazing experience to put together your own circuit board with a soldering gun, and it actually works and lights up! Highly recommended for everybody.
  • It's a great museum especially with physics and computer science department! I loved ships area but there is a better museum for this topic in Hamburg. I really enjoyed my day there. Note that you will require at least 5-6hours to go trough and see everything but not paying attention to all details.:)
