Deutsches Museum Reviews
Auf der website werben sie mit fotomuseum..leider gibts das nicht mehr. 4 etagen unterschiedliche austellungen Ist interessant.

The staff.. the people do not stare at so. this is unpleasant for the visitor.. We want to look at the exhibitions and not steal them. Let's linger.
Il museo offre tantissimo materiale. Penso che per la città, le scolaresche locali e che per chi voglia approfondire le proprie conoscenze, sia una risorsa incredibile. Al tempo stesso non è tutto oro... more »The museum offers a lot of material. I think that for the city, the local schools and that for those who want to deepen their knowledge, it is an incredible resource. At the same time it is not all gold that glitters, especially if you organize, as in my case, a trip with children without having a specific goal. In fact, the museum is certainly rich in material but alternates modern and engaging outfits with outfits that show the sign of time. Among the peculiarities of the museum, the large area dedicated to mines is certainly noteworthy. An all too extensive reconstruction of a mine that with the weekend heat is absolutely not recommended for those suffering from claustrophobia. The areas dedicated to mathematics and physics offer the opportunity to do a lot of interesting experiments. In short, a visit to make if you pass from Munich, with the knowledge that it takes at least half a day and that not all areas are "the state of the art" compared to the latest museums of science and technology. In my opinion, in fact, the "small" MUSE of Trento, for example, can offer for non-technical, even more interesting experiences of this boundless museum in Munich.
Awesome exhibits and truly huge museum. Have gone 3 times already and still haven't seen the whole thing. Some sections are currently under renovation, but what was open was very educational and entertaining for all ages. The live demonstrations and tours are worth your time.
Old but gold. Especially suits technology-savvy visitors. I would only recommend to visit with a guide, since it’s too big and the background stories make the things there way more interesting.
