It receives about 1.5 million visitors per year.
The museum was founded on 28 June 1903, at a meeting of the Association of German Engineers (VDI) as an initiative of Oskar von Miller. It is the largest museum in Munich. For a period of time the museum was used to host pop and rock concerts including The Who, Jimi Hendrix and Elton John.

Rarely visited such a good museum! Something for EVERYONE, no matter what you like. From my point of view, from the technology side, really great! Different things on the spot and an incredible amount to try for yourself. Unfortunately, the chemistry is missing. The best idea in the heavy current range!

Very comprehensive museum. Major sections had English explanations, but many smaller sections, particularly scientific demonstrations, were only in German. Nevertheless, covered everything from museum history, contributing German scientists, and past and present advances in sciences. Well worth a visit just to see the novel way the application of science to the real world is presented in an inspiring way.

Simply amazing. From childrens to old people, everyone will find this museum a place to visit if you're around Munich. Science, workmanship, history... You will find everything inside. Consider spending at least 4 hours to enjoy it

This is a great museum. The guide was explaining with simple English and you probably won't be bored. Lots of interesting things to see. There is also a restaurant. This a must-see if you visit Munich

Great museum, with beautiful presentations. The technology sections, such as mobility (aircraft, planes, etc.) is especially beautiful with many live-scale models of vessels, planes, and so on. The physics 'hands on' section is also one of the best I've visited, and includes several live demonstration by the museum staff. The only drawback is that most explanation panels are in German only. Even so, the museum is very enjoyable. As a side note, when we ordered soy-based hot chocolate for our daughter, who's allergic to milk, the attendant was so careful she even checked the cocoa-powder (which did include some dairy). It's just one of those small things that make you appreciate the place and visit even more.

Huge and interesting museum containing lots of topics. It may took more than 5 hours to finish the museum so you better plan your trip according to that. First thing you noticed about this museum is the huge crowd waiting to enter. However, if you don't want to wait for line, just take online ticket and wait only for entrance ticket check. There are several lockers and checkroom. You should lose all unnecessary things on you otherwise you will carry them for a quite time. There are several floors and sections in the museum for different topics from mining, mechanics, physics, computer, boats, nanotechnology and list goes on. You should make a plan otherwise you might get lost or miss lost of parts. There are lots of specifications and examples of working principle of many gadgets in the museum. Although some of them are out of order when I was there. In addition some sections doesn't have description with English which is quite sad as you may interested but there is only description in German(if you have audio then no problem). Some sections of the museum is unnecessarily huge such as boat part. After a certain time you may bored with seeing boat models. There are several canteens for food however, the lines are so long it took 30 minutes to buy a water so it is better to bring supplements with you. There is a quite view of Munich from the terrace as well. In summary, the museum is huge and informative and must see place for kids too.

Very nice museum, nice kids area. Parking wasn't to bad if your willing to walk a bit to get there. We had a enjoyable 10 minute walk along the river. There are a number of ships to see and a hall of machines. The price was more than reasonable for the visit.

What a museum! Couldn't see everything that I wanted but we ended up here for a good 4 hours. So much to see and lots of interactive activities. Very extensive and very informative. Great all day activity. Bit confusing where to go sometimes but no big deal as it's good to just wander. Plenty of elevators available as there is a number of floors.

Absolutely amazing. It is very large and cannot be fully enjoyed in only one day. There are so many hands on activities and areas for adults and children to explore and learn. The demonstrations are diverse and sufficiently offered but cannot all be done in a day. The price is also very reasonable and a great value. Great place to go rain or shine.

It's a lovely museum, if you are interested in mechanics and sciences you should consider visiting it. The museum is really big you can easily spend the whole day there and most of the exposed things are really interesting. Moreover, the museum offers many interactive exhibitions, which make the visit a lot more enjoyable. On the other hand, a bunch of the exhibited things and data are not recent. In addition to this not all the panels have a translation in English. Anyway I would advise spending a whole day there, even more if you are a student since the ticket is only 4€ for students.

Huge technology and industry museum with all kinds of exhibits. There really is a lot to see here. My wife and I spent six hours walking around in her at a leisurely pace and probably only saw about half the exhibits. To be fair that included time spent eating lunch in the museum restaurant, which was very good too. All exhibits have explanations in German and about half of the displays included text in English as well. Some of the displays are interesting without explanations, but others we passed by as we didn't know what we were looking at. Both my wife and I find the section on iron and steel very interesting. Very nice displays with excellent descriptions of how we (humans) started using iron and how we advanced to making steel from iron. If and when we return to Munich, we will definitely go back to the Deutches Museum to see the rest of the exhibits.

Great museum experience for the family! We had a great time looking at and interacting with all of the exhibits. The museum is extremely child friendly and easy access for strollers with check-in also available when you walk in. I would suggest you purchase your tickets online if you can, otherwise expect at least a 30 minute wait in line. Other than the wait for ticket purchase, the museum is a must if your visiting Munich!

The exhibitions are interesting and well done. Unfortunately, when visiting, a lot of the buttons weren't working and the older exhibitions only had few translations. For english speaking visitors, I recommend seeing the electricity/lightning show (loud, make sure to cover your ears when they tell you to!), the very interactive physics exhibition, the new exhibitions and the astronomy floors. The Mine, the Boat/Ships/Plane parts are also fun but more as a quick walk-through. All in all, I would say it was a quite alright museum experience.

Covering every major science with focus on engineering and technology. Some might find it too detailed, I felt it was just right on par with London Science Museum. There's plenty to spend a day in and prices are reasonable. Food in restaurant is good and drinks (beer, coffee) priced OK. Getting there is easy, parking not so. As always - if you can use public transport. If not there is paid parking spaces along the river and weekends are free. There are also a few public car parks nearby, some may be used for markets on Saturday.

A good day out especially for family’s. The museum is very interactive so keeps children interested while also teaching them cool information. Would definitely recommend as it is good value for money. We paid €4 each as student prices. Also there are great views of the city from the observation balconies.
Eden Hale | Jul 10, 2018
Great museum with lots of information. Was in a rush, so I only saw about half of the museum. Definitely a day trip of deciding to go. The language barrier was not a problem as almost all of the exhibits were in German and English. I also saw people wearing headsets that I believe spoke other languages. Should definitely spend time here, and I highly recommend you buy online as the line can be long.

Wonderful rainy day venture in the city. You can skip the tourist filled lines by buying your tickets online. Museum is LOADED with science stuffs to view. Great eye candy. Very informative. I only wish more of the exhibits were hands-on.
