Deutsches Museum reviews
This was a great afternoon in a traditional setting but with plenty of interesting activities for all ages. There are lockers near the entrance. Spacious and unhurried. Plenty of fantastic history... more »
I spent a fascinating afternoon in this museum. Wide range of technological and scientific artefacts Excellent cafe Lots to do and see for everyone more »
A great and huge museum to learn about different topics. Just in some parts English translation was not available and the design of the museum is a bit odd (We had to go back on our steps to get into the next floor). But it is a very nice place even to go with kids.
A very expansive science and technology museum... Definitely worth the visit. It was an interesting counterpoint to the London Science museum with a lot less crossover than you'd think. English support was mostly good with only a handful of exhibits not having English labels.
