  • Shame it’s out of the way and out of the city center. For plane lovers this is the place in town. It’s usually very quiet, except for the occasional pre-COVID air show. Kids love it.  more »
  • Must visit for everyone who is in love with aviation. True jewels are German experimental VTOLs. An hour is enough to see it. And it is always pleasure to walk in the park nearby.  more »
  • It was an easy train ride out towards the Airport with a short walk down a nice road. The museum is pretty hidden down a quiet road but there are signs. The exhibits were very interesting to me and...  more »

  • Great 30min to 4 hour stop. Some very good interactive kid displays for 5 to 12 years old. About 60% of displays are in both German and English. Well priced with a family rate. We do annual dance festival that is 15 min walk from this location, this is an ideal place to take the bored siblings who don't want to sit and watch other kids dance!
  • Very well set with very nice exposition. Kids friendly, free parking. Reasonable price considering the size of exposition. On the downside: it would be nice to get closer to get better view of some items, the flightsim was not operating for some reasons, the English version of some descriptions missing or has far less details than German. Bottom line: strongly recommended.
  • Some very unique exhibits. It was somewhat smaller than I’d imagined, but this maybe to do with the works going on at the Deutches museum in general. I wished it included a bit more of the actual airfield. Still, a very enjoyable experience.
  • A really superb aircraft museum, made all the more special as it's where some of these aircraft were based. From the late 1800's gliders to the Eurofighter, it's all here. There are also personal stories here about the men and women who were stationed here and flew from this airfield. There is a small cafe here, food is limited but nice. Being outside Munich it's in a quiet location which is good for soaking up the atmosphere. I also liked the large number of aircraft engines on display, some of which were cut away so that the inner workings could be seen. Leave yourself plenty of time, it's a fascinating place.
  • Not as busy as the primary museum. Perfect to see many airplanes! Glider field next door which is fun to watch.
