  • Very huge museum. There is so much to see. You can't get to know everything in one day. During our visit the museum wasn't too crowded.

  • A great collection of old cars, trains, trams and buses. Good place to spend time with your kids - there is even a small indoor playground in the end of the exhibition. The only minus is that there is no cafe in the museum so if you want to eat and drink something you have to bring it yourself.
  • Really nice place even though not many people know about its existence. Real-size transport and the actual TRAIN. Very cool place. Must see.
  • Interesting museum, has a fairly comprehensive history of transport in Munich and Germany. Similarly to the other Deutsches Museums, it has descriptions in both German and English. Some of the highlights were the many different types of trains on show and the older cars.
  • Needs more staff to quiet people down.
  • The kids love this place. Lot's of cars, motorcycles, trucks and trains, many of which you can take a look inside. They have a kids corner with a lunch area, but please bring your own food and drinks, the offers are very limited and currently way over priced. If you plan to come more often, get a membership, it's a real deal and counts for all branches.
