The Deutsches Museum is one of the largest and oldest science museums in the world, attracting more than 1.4 million visitors every year. Science exhibits are however not the only thing you will find inside.
Although the top floors house an observatory, and the lower floors exhibits about aviation and large vehicles, in the middle you can find a decorative arts section along with historical musical instruments including the first ever harpsichord.
The museum itself is located on an island in the middle of the Isar, and houses over 17,000 exhibits in all. You could easily spend a number of days wandering around, but if you're stretched on time, you will want to make sure you check out at least the following exhibits:
- Galileos Workshop
- The Enigma Machine
- First ever Automobile
- Zeiss Planetarium
- Aviation and Space Travel exhibit
- Marine Navigation area
- Desk where the first atom was split
- First electric dynamo
If you get hungry, the Deutsches Museum also houses a top quality restaurant, along with a Museum shop where tourist items can be bought. As mentioned earlier, the Museum is located on the Isar, in a convenient spot in central Munich.
Deutsches Museum (German Museum) Reviews
This museum is simply huge! We only allowed a few hours to see it, but in reality, we should have taken the whole day to explore it properly.
Entrance isn't particularly cheap, but definitely worth it. This is something you don't want to miss when you're in Munich.
We really enjoyed the museum. It was so big and with such a variety of things to see. The first automobile was good but I really liked the aviation exhibit. There was also a submarine in the marine section! Definitely worth a visit.
