Deutsches Museum - Technological History

The Deutsches Museum in Munich is a mecca for anyone interested in science and technology. It was founded on the initiative of Oskar von Miller (1855-1934) at the beginning of the 20th century and is one of the world's most important technology museums.

A mecca for anyone interested in science and technology
Covering a total area of almost 60,000m², the Deutsches Museum has an extensive and highly interesting collection of exhibits from the worlds of science and technology: from experiments that visitors can start themselves at the push of a button and presentations about cars, aeroplanes or space travel to a replica mine and much more besides. The children's world also has plenty to keep budding young scientists occupied. The museum covers everything from a prehistoric stone axe to an InterCity Express train (transport), and from a pocket sun dial (astronomical instruments) to the scanning tunnel microscope (nanotechnology).

The museum has approx. 120,000 objects illustrating the historical development of science and technology. It also has the largest collection of historical works and modern-day objects, as well as numerous interactive exhibits, a massive archive and 800,000 books. The main attractions include the mining and open-cast mining section, motorised machines, an extensive shipping section, a large mathematics section, and aviation and astronomy sections. Other highlights include a Faraday cage, in which a museum employee demonstrates how you can survive a bolt of lightning discharging more than a quarter of a million volts. This is just a small selection of what's on offer.
