  • A great Museum that appeals to both large and small that it's not boring and oriented to everything related to science and technology in General.

  • Shameful that in 2017 should be done 3 hours straight to get to a Museum! Shame it was not possible to make a ticket online ... Although you were told to do it in order not to stand in line. Pity that it was not possible to connect to the site Nice tickets

  • Disappointed expectations of interactive museum. I'm an insider and have visited many science museums. This museum has plans set up more like a Museum of the history of science and of science itself. Than many other science museums is quite dated, exposes a large amount of objects, instruments, apparatus, machines, including precious, without pointing to good communication of content. Even historians. With no cure insight. Although full of foreigners, the English texts are brief and the different laboratories are only in German. In the plane of physics, the more interactive, too many things are out of order. Also the Planetarium show, it deserves a visit, it has no text to support understanding of the show in the sky, as happens elsewhere. Interesting but all too dated. Requires a major revision of the criteria for scientific communication in modern museums

  • The museum is well looked after and has an extensive collection. Everything is well laid out, and there are occasional presentations of some of the technology at work. Unfortunately, although English is in some parts of the museum, it's inconsistent. I wanted to read more about the development of the plane but found gaps in the information boards. Otherwise, it's definitely worth a visit.
  • Huge museum. I was there also second day. One day wasn't enough. Aviation section was closed for renovation. Check out the mining section even if you are not interested in the subject. Impressive setup!
  • There are a lot of really interesting displays. The kids area is good for the little ones to explore and get involved. The boat and airplane displays were excellent. I found that there were a lot of interactive displays that didn't work. We pushed a lot of buttons that did nothing.
  • Incredible huge museum. You can spend several days in here! The best museum in Germany. And the best thing is the price. As a student you just pay 4 €.
  • This is really a huge museum and one of the best ones out there for science and technology. The adult ticket is eleven euros. The exhibits are really detailed and if one wants to see everything then two days are needed at least
