Planes, model trains, ships, a wide collection. This is a very good museum but not on the impressive scale as a day at the London Science and Natural History museums..which are on a different level. This said, 2 hours at the Deutsches Museum would be fun. Just check in advance that all the exhibitions are open.

Top tip is save the mining exhibition until last and entry to Otis tricky best accessed from the staircases from the east observatory or can be easily missed. Minimum time I would say is 4 hours and enjoy.

This museum is HUGE. You will need at least 1 full day to go thru all levels. Highly recommended for students at all age. Even university students will love this place! You will learn a lot about many things

Fantastic museum and perfect for children. There are 39 permanent exhibits. Aviation and navigation exhibits were very impressive. The electricity demonstration was very good. Definitely recommend going to this museum. Gift shop is excellent.

I've been to many museums before, but nothing compares with this one! Our kids (8 and 11) enjoyed every moment - there are may interactive items. Really worth the visit - just make sure you have enough time!

Lots and lots of rooms displaying Germany's best science and technology. I would recommend visiting the Altamira Cave exhibit, showing a detailed reconstruction. Very good gift shop too!

İf you visit munich you should also see this museum. İt is a mut imo. You can see the evolvement of technology and experience it. The museum is big and it takes almost 2 hours to see everything in there. İf you are an expert you need one day to visit here.

Spent 3 hours there and didn't get a chance to see everything but worth the time to visit. Best was the kids area where we spent most of the time and our 3 y/o loved it! Lots of interactive things for kids to do and explore.

We planned our visit there to be at most 5 hours but we ended in a big hurry because of the closing hours. There are so many interesting things to see and to do ( you can do all kinds of " experiments"), a day at least should be booked for enjoyng this museum. We really loved it, and some... More
