Sailing ships, models of atoms, windmills, space probes, diesel locomotives, industrial robots, organs, lifeboats,...this unbelievable abundance of technical achievement - and lots more - can be found in the Deutsches Museum.
Machines, lightnings and telescopes
A house of superlatives: it is not only one of the first scientific-technological museums in the world, but also one of the most frequently visited, and with an area of 50,000 square meters the biggest of all. The laws of nature, instruments and technological methods are presented in this Mount Olympus of knowledge on a scientifically high level, yet in an enthralling and entertaining way. Machines hum, lightning flashes through the air, telescopes zoom in on star formations.
The secret of success: learning by doing
Learning by doing – this concept enthralls around 1.3 million people every year. And has been providing visitors with a comprehensive basic understanding of science and technology for one hundred years.
Understanding that is urgently needed to get to grips with a world that is becoming more and more complex. Also part of the Deutsches Museum: the Verkehrszentrum (featuring all kinds of vehicles - from formula 1 car to bicycle) and the Flugwerft (focussing on airplanes).
