I could see all kind of "flying equipment": from old gliders to vertical take off fighter jet to modern helicopter, from USA and USSR as well as from Europe. Weather monitoring equipment was also a pleasant surprise, though my tour guide didn't have time to cover it. Disclosure: I was there for special event, and had lots of time to explore.
Though a bit harder to reach, this branch of the museum is as great as the other two in the area. It's a great selection of aircrafts (planes, helicopters, ...), many of which you can have a look inside. For the kids, they have regular flight shows with self-made planes. If you plan to come more often, get a membership, it's a real deal and counts for all branches.
One of the best aviation museum.
There's an exceptional amount of airplanes/aircrafts/anything-flyable in those 2 impressively big buildings. So far so good, however, personally the museum was after all lacking of interaction. Interactive stuff like doing your own experiments or screens with controllable content were very rare. Also the helicopter simulation did cost you additional money (5€ or so!!)
An annexe to the deutsches museum, dedicated to rare planes and prototypes
