  • The Deutsches Museum is a classic of German museums. There are exhibitions of all areas. From coal mining to computers, from astronomy to electricity, everything. Unfortunately it happens more often times, demonstration models do not work. Also you have the feeling that less was invested in the last few years. When the computer exhibition can be seen very clearly this, because there are in fact no new exhibits. Nevertheless, if you are in Munich, a day stay here is compulsory!

  • I have been here a couple of times allready. If you love knowledge, then this is a must-see location in München. They have numerous sections, covering various fields in impressive depth. I hung out in...  more »
  • I think it is a must to Munich. Though you need to spend a whole day because there are plenty of things to look at and would be a waste to stay there only half a day.

  • 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.
