German Museum

Local nameDeutsches Museum
LocationMunich, Germany

Located on an island in the middle of the city, this is the largest museum devoted to science and technology worldwide. Explore the collection of over 100 000 objects ranging from candelabras to a U1 submarine, or watch one of the interesting interactive programmes that change on a daily basis.

Opened in 1903, the museum consists of a large complex, including a tower with a barometer and a Hall of Fame, in addition to the actual building. It is divided into 35 sections spreading over 6 levels. These are centered around several main themes, ranging from natural sciences to man and environment. Highlights include a visit to the museum's planetarium and observatory, a flight simulator in the Transport section, and a reproduction of the Altamira cave paintings in the Communication section.

The easiest way to get to the museum is via public transport. Either take the S-Bahn line, exiting at the Isartor stop, or the U-Bahn line heading to Fraunhoferstrasse.

Until 2020, some of the exhibitions may be closed due to reconstruction works. Please, check the official website for more details.
