The German Museum in Munich is one of the largest science and technology museums in the world. The permanent exhibitions are generously distributed and encompass almost every technical and scientific area imaginable, including astronomy, tool technology and time measurements. There are some unique samples, such as the Magdeburg hemisphere or the first Diesel engine, the cave of Altamira and a replica of an enlarged human cell.

Further highlights are the first motor-aircraft developed by the brothers Wright, the submarine U1, the first programme controlled computer by Konrad Zuse, or Foucault's pendulum. Apart from these samples, the museum exhibits several other models and experiments to try out yourself.

The German Museum in Munich does not only look back to past achievements, but also towards developments in the future. At the Centre for New Technologies, future oriented topics such as genetic research or nanotechnology are presented to the audience. Interactive stations present past German Future Prize winners of the last decade, for instance, the inventors of mp3.

Special Exhibitions

Numerous changing special exhibitions deal with current topics. Exhibitions include shipbuilding, aerospace technology, energy technology, electricity and environment, mining, material and agricultural technology, photography and film, print technology and telecommunication. The musical instrument exhibition with its historic samples and music studios is definitely worth a visit. Live concerts are hosted here regularly.

At the kids' area, children of up to 10 years accompanied by their parents or teachers learn about science and technology in a playful manner.

Renovation Works Until 2025

To get the German Museum building up to current standards, it will be renovated from the ground up, and all the exhibitions renewed by 2025. Hence, some areas will be closed during the renovation period. However, at least half of the exhibition space will be open and accessible at all times.
