  • Flugwerft Schleißheim is a branch of Deutshes Museum dedicated to aviation. Placed in an old airfield and used during WWI and WWII, you'll get there in around 30 minutes from Marienplatz (Munich). It ...  more »
  • Small museum, in fact annex to the Deutsche Museum located in an airfield on the outskirts of Munich, which traces the beginnings of the German air force. A large hall with German prototypes, choppers and all jets used by the Luftwaffe (FRG) and the GDR (F104, Tornado, Mig21...) and two exceptional pieces: a Me 262 and a Me 163. Museum for aviation geeks.

  • I loved it! This museum, branch of the Deutsche Museum, has a collection of rarities not to be missed for those who likes aviation, especially the military. Has a Heinkel 111 who fought in the Spanish Civil War, a Messechmitt Bf-109, a Messerchmitt 163 Komet (aircraft-rocket used in 1944/1945) and a Messerchmitt 262-the first operational jet aircraft of military history. There is everything: engines, thumbnails, cockpits, airplanes and even aircraft seats to enjoy a imaginary trip! The kids go crazy in this place! Good structure of wardrobe, restrooms, food and souvenirs. If you're into aviation, not miss under any circumstances!

  • Nice and spacious museum. You can enter two planes and have a look inside. Also there is an enormous amount of engines which aren't behind glass so you can really have a close look at everything. The shop is alright, but nothing you find there you can't find on Amazon cheaper so some exclusive stuff would be great Other than that it's a great experience and worth the 6€ or 3€ if you're a student
  • This is a good museum but not great. I had read somewhere that it was on par with the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum in Washington DC, but it hardly compares. The facility seems more centered on simply the restoration of old planes rather than effectively displaying the history of German aviation in such a way that is truly insightful for the visitor. If you are in Munich I would not make a special effort to come out to the facility north of the city unless you are a hardcore aviation enthusiast or if you are visiting the area anyway, such as the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial which is not far away. For a visitor of modest interest two hours is sufficient time to view the exhibits. Lockers are available for temporary storage of bags and personal items.
  • I really enjoyed this museum. It was bigger than I originally thought. A lot of things to see.
  • Very interesting airplanes collection (VTOLS DO-31, VJ 101 X2, ME-163 rocket interceptor), not that crowded. Posters collection is also quite... interesting
  • Fabulous museum. Anywhere that has an Me109, an He111 and an Me262 on display gets 5 stars from me.
