Deutsches Technikmuseum (German Museum of Technology) Review

A must if you're traveling with children, this musem will enchant anyone who's interested in technology or fascinated with trains, planes, and automobiles. Set in the remains of Anhalter Bahnhof's industrial yard and enhanced with a newer, glass-enclosed wing, the museum has several floors of machinery, including two airplane rooms on the upper floors crowned with a "Rosinenbomber," one of the beloved airplanes that delivered supplies to Tempelhof Airport during the Berlin Airlift of 1948. Don't miss the train sheds, which are like three-dimensional, walkable timelines of trains throughout history, and the historical brewery, which has a great rooftop view of today's trains, U-bahn lines U1 and U2, converging at the neighboring Gleisdreieck station.

    Best museum of technology

    This museum of techonology focuses on rail transports, industrial technology, computer history, photography, cinema, everything you can imagine in this area. It’s the kind of place you can search for hours, and get lost in it. There’s a lot of experiments and visible tryouts, even if you are not into science, it’s wonderful to learn how things work. My favorite part is the photography and cinema collection, with a full range of all cameras that existed and how they work. It’s amazing. If you want, here I have a few photos and full review: www.wait-where.com/deutsches-technikmuseum/
