Deutsches Museum, the world's largest museum of science and technology, welcomes about 1.5 million visitors each year. You can explore nearly 28,000 objects in 50 science and technology fields. Founded in 1903 on the initiative of engineer Oskar von Miller, the museum's main site is on Museum Island in the Isar river. (Two other spots in the city host additional exhibit spaces.) Explore the museum's interactive exhibits dedicated to natural sciences, telecommunications, tunnel construction, technical toys, astronautics, bridge building, marine navigation, aerospace, and much more. Photography is permitted, so don't forget your camera. Deutsches Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Munich Edition.

The musemum educational value, especially the departments of physics or electrics, was considered unique, the partly simple experiments on which children and adults tried each other, offered deep insights and certainly produced some researchers. What is happening now: With an enormous amount of clamauk, technical frills, expensive and sponsor-loving effort, new departments are created that are cluttered and pedagogically unimaginative. The pharmacy sector is like a provisional one. What would have been possible? Renewable energy-has no one come up with anything more imaginative than the few exhibits? Above all, with few resources, perhaps even some volunteer commitment, the old and proven departments of physics, electrics, shipping, mining could be well preserved and further developed. But there: Almost one in three experimental exhibits is defective. What a mourning game! Leave all the effort for nanophysics! This is mainly a hobbyhorse of the ladder and only a few are really interested in it. You are a technical museum, not a workshop for the future. If Heckl wants to play with Söder in Start-lock costumes, he's supposed to do that in kindergarten. But please don't let the good at the Deutsches Museum perish so shamefully! Finacial at the end, hardly any ideas and not the slightest sense of the good tradition of a century-old facility. How could this happen? When will the price be corrected?
If someone visits the Munich and does not visit it then it means he has not visited the Munich really in its completeness. It is open on all days and weekend unless some public holiday. Good for children to realize how we have this new technology in place in current time. It gives the impression of evolution on technology and human development.
Simply a great Museum with lots of exhibits about physics, astronomy, computer science and history, pharmaceutics, nanotechnology, and much more. The high voltage presentation is always a must-see. Estimated time to spend there well to really absorb and learn many things are probably a few days, so plan it well if you're enthusiastic about learning.
