This museum is extensive and full of items of interest to most people.
You will need several days to cover all exhibits.
In particular, we were in awe of the old steam engines, drives and the like which showed superb technology for their years.
Planes, ships and models were on display with some cutouts showing the internals of these machines.
The plastics, brick making and working toy models were also excellent examples of the museum's work.
Be aware that the museum can be super busy, particularly on weekends, so be prepared for a crowd.

Tons to see, but most of the aircraft that you really want to see is located several miles away at an old airfield.

There is only so much beer, wurst, and chicken that one can consume at Oktoberfest. So, on a sobriety break, we visited this most expansive and interesting museum. For Americans it is a cross between Philadelphia's Franklin Institute and Washington's Smithsonian. One day only breaks the surface.

We visited the impressive Deutsches Museum, the World's largest museum of science and technology, with about 28,000 exhibited objects from 50 fields of science and technology. The museum was founded on 28th of June in 1903, at a meeting of the of German Engineers Association (VDI) as an initiative of Oscar von Miller and is the largest museum in Munich. It also, for a period, used to host rock concerts with the likes of Jimi Hendrix performing there. Today this fascinating museum has around 1.5 million visitors per year and is an important museum in the sense that our knowledge of past and present insight into science and technology is vastly crucial in sustaining our ways of life for future generations to come. Me, my wife, and especially our daughter, had a fantastic time learning and understanding the needs of science and technology after visiting this wonderful museum.

The mining experience is amazing. It is well organized and easy to visit. If you are with a teen ager it would be easy to engage it because there are plenty of subjects to explore. Do not forget to buy online tickets and once inside buy the Planetarium ticket.
