  • It's not the Deutsches museum and its branch. Do not mix! Museum ticket worth 7 euros for adults. Exit the Metro station "U" 4 Schwanthalerhöhe/U5 virtually opposite the Museum, if you leave a little, on the other hand, it is necessary to pass the signs-arrows triangles "Deutsches Museum Verkehrszentrum". In the Museum Café no, but in the courtyard of the Museum of the great Bavarian restaurant with beer from Augustine. In good weather with 4:00 in the courtyard restaurant works even stall where the spit roasted fish. Another bonus-the Museum is located right at the edge of the Theresienwiese-Theresienwiese, where the Oktoberfest takes place in autumn. And just on the edge, where the Temple of Bavarian fame and world-renowned huge Bavaria statue with monstrous proportions by the Bavarian lion. Take-just go yard Museum until the end. The Museum has a small gift shop. There is a play area for children. The Museum consists of three huge hangars. Once this place was Munich Messe Exhibition Centre. But in the 1980s, the Centre was moved to another location, and the center of a microdistrict was built with apartments, Office, school-and with the building of the present Transport Museum. The Museum is very interesting. It matched the unique exhibits of all types of transport: carriages, bicycles, motorcycles, mopeds, cars, locomotives. Particularly impressive are the oldest specimens of bicycles, motorcycles and cars.

  • It was unfortunately did not enjoy than they had anticipated. If spare time staff located in urban areas, but... a feel. So many still feel the history of trains and trams are spectacular was a.

  • It is a good plan if you're with children, especially for the days that this raining and you have fewer options. Is there a family ticket (2 adults + 2 children) £ 12 (not is if cheaper on weekdays). It has 3 pavilions dedicated to transport, with old trains that kids like. It is located opposite where the Oktoberfest (not confused with other offices of the Deustches Museum). It has no restaurant inside, only a few vending machines, but there is a restaurant typical Bavarian just opposite the main entrance.

  • Good exhibits on a variety of types of transportation. Cars, buses, trams, trains, and bicycles are all covered. The quality and quantity of exhibits makes the ticket price a great value, especially if combined with their other locations in the city in a combination ticket! Almost all exhibit signs and documentation are in both English and German. The museum is well organized and the exhibits are laid out in a thoughtful way, almost creating a narrative. The demos are of good quality, but unfortunately not every demo is done every day. No cafe or restaurant is on site, just a few mediocre vending machines. The location is quite easy to get to, being just a 2 minute walk from a U Bahn station.
  • Wonderful selection of trains, trams and cars old and new with German and English information plaques. Very quiet, reasonable entry cost, great place to spend a few hours at. Make sure to time a visit around the demonstrations - they run steam engines with compressed air and it's quite impressive.
  • A bit further away but great for children and people interested in mechanical and automotive technology. One can see unique vehicles found nowhere else in the world as well as mechanical workings.
  • It's really a fun experience, because it doesn't only have lots of information about vehicles and their history, but it also has a lot of things you can do there, like a bicycle competition, and lots of games, quizzes and things to explore. It also has a place for chlidren, and a relaxing area.
  • What a great surprise! All 3 of my children loved it - ages ranging from 6 to 12. I did as well, although I wasn't expecting to. We went on a sunny Sunday, and the place was empty. We spent several hours there and still didn't see everything. What a treasure in our city! Will definitely return and suggest to others as a "must see" in Munich!
