  • You need day to visit and try the experiments, they still didn't translate everything, so you need a german translator or guide. You can bring young kids there, because they can play and experiment.  more »

  • This place is so cool. The musuen gives you knowledge about the past how things evolve. I love it. This is also a hreat place for kid to learn a lot of things.
  • Great for grownups and children, but wear comfortable shoes as you will have to do some walking to enjoy it all.
  • Germans like maschines, this is place where man cann see what Germans have done.
  • 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.
  • Nice collection of vehicles, however hardly any can be experienced by touching or sitting into them. Most vehicles you can only see from the outside, which delivers pretty much the same experience as walking on the street. This way visiting this museum might get frustrating or even disappointing for interested kids.
