"It's a biggie" Deutsches Museum Tip by iandsmith
Deutsches Museum, Munich: 51 reviews and 107 photos
This is a museum in many parts. The largest of which is on the Museum Island. One of the world's largest science and technology museums, it promises much but delivers more.
Do you want to see airplanes, submarines, the first X-ray machine? Live demonstrations and hands-on instructional aids are fun and informative for the visitor. The Deutsches Museum has everything, from a coal mine to the stars! But to see it all, you'll have to walk 16 kilometres.
The first thing you will probably come across is the maritime section, though you could be excused when seeing the picture 2 that you have just come across some Aussies after a late night in a beer hall.
There are models of ships (pic 5), full blown models of engines (pic 4) and even ships themselves (pic 3); the latter being of a size no longer needed in the modern world.
A new branch of the Deutsches Museum, the "Flugwerft Schleissheim" - a reconstructed airplane factory - has opened in Oberschleissheim.
