Very modern display. This is a must see for those that are interested in Zeppelin history. The exhibits were very informative. Walks you through the early development of airships, the failures and successes, and the ultimate airships that flew from Germany to North and South America.

I wanted to see this Museum because I thought it would be interesting to learn about Zeppelins and I wanted to see the interiors of one. Well, here you will learn about Zeppelins and that is interesting. However, you do not get to see much about the insides. They only have a bathroom and two small bedrooms used by the... More

A really great presentation of the history of airships including a life size mockup of part of the Hindenberg passenger cabin. The only downside was that it was a bit crowded the day we were there and the Hindenberg section backed up. It would be better somehow if the historical hindenberg artifacts could be displayed in a more open area.... More

This was a great experience, to see how these craft were built and see how the Hindenberg came to such grief. There was plenty of information and interactive things to see, Very worthwhile visit

First a tip: this is wheelchair accessible (almost throughout - helps if you can climb a few stairs and walk a little)) but we got confused and did everything backwards. Second: read the backstory of how the Germans after the war turned their slave labour munitions factories into a world-wide enterprise that makes the money to support this amazing museum... More

The Zeppelin Museum houses, as the name implies, much information on the Zeppelins. Especially impressive is the replica of the Hindenburg with its guest quarters, and restaurant. Kids can get (for a few euros) a box in which they can store cards they can collect throgh the museum with authentic information, riddles, and assignments. However, be prepared to stand in... More

A great insight into the Zeppelin with lots to see and learn, we spent about 2 hours looking around, a great morning out and an added bonus was the Ottoman Dix artist collection to see, which was fantastic.

The musuem is a nice little place to see and worth a visit. It is not very large but has some intersting exhibits. The one thing i would say is stay away from the Star Trek exhibit, its very expensive and nothing really to see a bit of a rip off actually.

This museum is a "must-see" during a stay in Friedrichshafen. Well suited for children and young-at-heart adults.
