Fodor's Review

Aircraft, vehicles, cutting-edge technology, historic machinery, and even a mine fill a monumental building on an island in the Isar River, which comprises one of the best science and technology museums in the world. The collection is spread out over 47,000 square meters, six floors of exhibits, and about 50 exhibition areas. The Centre for New Technologies includes interactive exhibitions, such as nanotechnology, biotechnology, and robotics. It could change the way you

think about science forever. Children have their own area, the Kinderreich, where they can learn about modern technology and science through numerous interactive displays (parents must accompany their children). One of the most technically advanced planetariums in Europe has four shows daily. The Internet café on the third floor is open daily 9–3, other cafés until 4. To arrange for a two-hour tour in English, call at least six weeks in advance. The Verkehrszentrum (Center for Transportation), on the former trade fair grounds at the Theresienhöhe, has been completely renovated and houses an amazing collection of the museum's transportation exhibits.

Educationally Outstanding

Gigantic, and full of information, much with English captions and much of the rest understandable without them. The hall displaying the evolution of the computer is fascinating in detailing every tiny new development over 70 or so years. We spent half a day, got thru about a fifth of it.

Great but....

Yes there are great detailed exhibits taking each technology through it's history with large models or actual ships and planes. Most of the interactive exhibits were not working and in late July the place was mobbed with kids and teenagers. Regardless of the euro's strength it was about $10 to get in. Cannot say the Simthsonian or the American Museum of Nat. History in NY, etc. aren't on a par or higher.

One of the best Museums in the world

The Deutsches Museum is by far one of the best museums in the world. You could spend all day there and still not see everything. A must see!
