The landmark of the Deutsches Museum, the museum tower, is clearly visible – even from a distance. It houses a modern weather station and also Germany's largest thermometer. Founded more than 100 years ago, Deutsches Museum today exhibits one of the most important collections of natural science technology.
At three locations – on Munich's Museum Island, at the Verkehrszentrum (Transport Museum) and Schleissheim airfield – visitors can take part in demonstrations, experiments and media stations. The masterpieces gathered here leave guests amazed and challenge their minds.
In 2022, after a thorough renovation, the first part of the building on Museum Island reopened with 19 new departments. Until the renovation work in the second part of the building is completed, visitors will no longer enter the museum via the main entrance in the museum courtyard, but via an entrance on Corneliusbrücke (bridge). Here you can take a first glance at the new departments of the Deutsches Museum.
The range of topics is wide: from model railways to atomic physics, from electronics to health, from “bridges and hydraulic engineering“ to musical instruments. You can also admire the newly designed aerospace hall with an exhibition area of almost 7000 square metres.
The Deutsches Museum is a place of active learning, where children and adults can satisfy their curiosity: hear and see, touch, try out and experience! After the renovation, many of the museum's highlights, such as the first diesel engine, the flight simulator or the famous “nuclear fission table“ in chemistry, have returned to the new permanent exhibitions in the main building on Museum Island. However, a third of all exhibits are new and have been moved from the museum depot to the new exhibitions.
The highlight is the new restaurant “Frau im Mond” with a roof terrace leading from the museum's space exhibition to the outside. From here, you have a view across the Isar river to the mountains. The restaurant is also accessible in the evening via the newly designed museum garden.
Deutsches Museum is particularly popular with families and children and offers something for every age group. The little ones (three to eight years old) can visit the kiddies' world together with their parents and explore the pulley, giant guitar, a hall of mirrors and indoor playground.
Slightly older children from the age of seven years can join in the experiment workshop or celebrate themed birthdays here. In addition, the museum offers many workshops and guided tours aimed exclusively at children and young people. Children can also discover various films, audio guides and information for children online.
In the inner courtyard of the museum is the Deutsches Museum shop with its range of smart souvenirs, gifts and scientific and technical toys.
You can also experience Deutsches Museum in a digital way: On Youtube, the museum offers virtual 360-degree tours or guided excursions through its exhibition rooms. There is also a newly developed media guide with explanations of the exhibits in words, pictures and sound. You can download this app to your own smartphone or rent it on borrowed devices.
