Deutsches Museum

Museumsinsel 1, Munich

4.5

Deutsches Museum is one the inseparable parts of Munich and one of the largest museums of science and technology. The museum is located on the island in the Isar River. It was founded in 1903. Museum hosts approximately 1.5 million visitors per year. The exhibits and the topics are of a great variety: about 280, 000 exhibits and 50 fields (aerospace, astronomy, agriculture, computers, chemistry, electricity, music, railways, and telecommunication). Visiting the museum is a way to see and gain useful and interesting information. It’s a place which interests different aged people. Deutsches Museum is open every day from 9 am to 5 pm. Sometimes the museum closes its doors for a day or two, but the free days don’t have any exact schedule: that’s why it is extremely necessary to check the museum timeline before visiting it. The Deutsches Museum suggests not only German but also English speaking guides available to answer all the questions of the visitors. But not all the parts of the museum have both English and German speaking guides. Different parts suggest different services: Besides visiting the museum and strolling through the large territory of the museum visitors also have an opportunity to become a part of the interesting events and lectures organized for visitors of different age. If you want to open the deep and magical world of science, don’t miss the chance to visit it.

    Covering every major science with focus on engineering and technology. Some might find it too detailed, I felt it was just right on par with London Science Museum. There's plenty to spend a day in and prices are reasonable. Food in restaurant is good and drinks (beer, coffee) priced OK. Getting there is easy, parking not so. As always - if you can use public transport. If not there is paid parking spaces along the river and weekends are free. There are also a few public car parks nearby, some may be used for markets on Saturday.

    Wonderful rainy day venture in the city. You can skip the tourist filled lines by buying your tickets online. Museum is LOADED with science stuffs to view. Great eye candy. Very informative. I only wish more of the exhibits were hands-on.

    Great museum with lots of information. Was in a rush, so I only saw about half of the museum. Definitely a day trip of deciding to go. The language barrier was not a problem as almost all of the exhibits were in German and English. I also saw people wearing headsets that I believe spoke other languages. Should definitely spend time here, and I highly recommend you buy online as the line can be long.

    A good day out especially for family’s. The museum is very interactive so keeps children interested while also teaching them cool information. Would definitely recommend as it is good value for money. We paid €4 each as student prices. Also there are great views of the city from the observation balconies.

    Great museum experience for the family! We had a great time looking at and interacting with all of the exhibits. The museum is extremely child friendly and easy access for strollers with check-in also available when you walk in. I would suggest you purchase your tickets online if you can, otherwise expect at least a 30 minute wait in line. Other than the wait for ticket purchase, the museum is a must if your visiting Munich!

    The technology sections, such as mobility (aircraft, planes, etc.) is especially beautiful with many live-scale models of vessels, planes, and so on. The physics 'hands on' section is also one of the best I've visited, and includes several live demonstration by the museum staff. Rarely visited such a good museum! Something for EVERYONE, no matter what you like. from the technology side, really great! Different things on the spot and an incredible amount to try for yourself. Unfortunately, the chemistry is missing. The best idea in the heavy current range! student prices and digital guides in multiply languages are available The only drawback is that most explanation panels are in German only. Even so, the museum is very enjoyable.

    Great museum and archive. The contents range is super wide containing physics, astronomy, informatics, electronics but also things like geology and astronomy. Sadly the atom physics and electron magnetic radiation are undergoing some changes and are therefore closed until 2020. The museum's restaurant offers good but expensive food. Sort of highlight were the message chairs and foot plates offering some place to recover your feet and body from walking around all day. Also there are free tours one should really consider talking part in as they will guide you through an entire area with system and a lot of information. Same goes for the shows like the one I watched about super fluid helium and high voltage.

    This is the greatest museum I know. It has a wide range of technical and scientific exhibitions. The highlights are the detailed mining exhibition with authentic replications of historic mines and the modern airplanes with helicopters and jets. Unfortunately the airplane exhibition is under renovation until 2020. It featured marvels like the Me 262, the first jet airplane. Besides that there are great exhibitions of ships, historic airplanes, steam machines, electricity and much more. In addition there are also temporary exhibitions.

    Great museum, with beautiful presentations. The technology sections, such as mobility (aircraft, planes, etc.) is especially beautiful with many live-scale models of vessels, planes, and so on. The physics 'hands on' section is also one of the best I've visited, and includes several live demonstration by the museum staff. The only drawback is that most explanation panels are in German only. Even so, the museum is very enjoyable. As a side note, when we ordered soy-based hot chocolate for our daughter, who's allergic to milk, the attendant was so careful she even checked the cocoa-powder (which did include some dairy). It's just one of those small things that make you appreciate the place and visit even more.

    The museum is very interesting but some of the exhibits have gotten old and need renovation. The scale and depth of the exhibition is amazing. Especially the mining exhibition and the electricity show alone are worth coming here. We also liked the cave paintings and generally the historical depth. However, most of the museum would need more guidance and explanation about the significance of the exhibits and the world view they transported during their time period. All that being said this is definitely a place worth visiting.
