German Museum in Munich is one of the largest museum

" "

The Deutsches Museum is one of the largest and oldest science museums in the world, attracting more than 1.4 million visitors every year. Science exhibits are however not the only thing you will find inside.

Although the top floors house an observatory, and the lower floors exhibits about aviation and large vehicles, in the middle you can find a decorative arts section along with historical musical instruments including the first ever harpsichord.

 The German Museum‘s collection includes over 100,000 objects from the fields of science and technology. Many valuable, original exhibits are on show, making this one of the most important museums of science and technology in the world. The collections are not limited to one theme but range from mining to atomic physics, from the Altamira Cave to a large-scale replica of a human cell.

All eras are represented, from the Stone Age to the present day. Around a quarter of the collection is on display: in the main building on the museum island, at the transport museum at Theresienhöhe, in the hangar at Schleissheim airfield and at the German Museum in Bonn. The highlights include the first car built by Karl Benz, the „U1“ U-boat, the Wright brothers‘ first motorised plane and the first Fischer rawlplug. Visitors to the museum can explore more than 40 themes.
