Famous for its interactive exhibitions, inventive displays and impressive collection of artifacts, the Deutsches Museum succeeds in its quest to make science fun and accessible to all ages and interests. Exhibitions cover topics like transport, communication, energy and natural science, with interactive elements including a series of giant musical instruments to play, model coal and salt mines, glass-blowing and paper-making demonstrations and an authentic space laboratory. There’s even a Kid’s Kingdom, where a child-sized mouse wheel and a real fire engine will keep the kids entertained.
The collection is so big it even spills over into 2 additional buildings – the nearby Verkehrszentrum houses the Transport Museum, where highlights include a series of historic tram and train wagons, and the Flugwerft Schleißheim, located at Oberschleissheim Airfield, displays the museum’s sizable collection of aircraft.
