A must for fans of technology

How did the railroad stop 150 years ago at the station before the brakes existed? Could the first computer already count up to 100? And: why do the sailor's knots have in fact bays and eyes? The German Museum of the Technology of Berlin gives us the answers for almost 30 years.

In the 14 sections that the Museum the visitors can discover the fascinating technical history that has the civilization and take part in it. More than 40 railroad cars of between 1843 and 1985 await the visitors to be discoverered, who will be able to sit down in the seat of the chief of a steam locomotive. Big and small sailors can explore a real interior freighter and those who want to feel craftsmen will be able to make their own role. Do you want to research on the development of the aviation and astronautics, study in depth the manufacture of jewels and of motorcars, know more closely the devices of telecommunication, the energy skill and the telecommunications or visit the historical brewery and the old mills? The German Museum of Technich of Berlin exhibits from numerous works like for example ancient tickets of meter as well as the machines to sting, up to the papers regarding the first exits of plane, the whole development of the technology without which the world of nowadays would not be possible. There exists the possibility that the children interact, observe the results of the ativities that there they can realise, in addition to the fact of which there is a wide seminars offer.

This is a great museum that includes a vast selection of technology exhibits including trains, airplanes, ships, and airplanes. There are also exhibits related to German and worldwide radio and television technology. Furthermore there is a reconstructed old brewery exhibit and a park that surrounds the museum containing a reconstructed Dutch windmill. This museum is huge and I could easily spend several days here.

This museum is very informative and has lots to see. It is great for kids. We spend nearly 5 hours there and we needed at least another 5 to see it all!! There lots of hands on things for the children (the wind power exhibit was a hit) and lots of good reading and historical facts for grown ups. The train hangars are way cool and my son just loved seeing all the locomotives. I highly recommend visiting this museum.

We barely scratched the surface in our afternoon there -- we checked out tons of old trains, and the jewelry making exhibits, and other fascinating things. The neighboring Spektrum science center has really well-done practical demonstrations of mechanics, optics, fluid dynamics, acoustics, etc. And a cloud chamber that shows some of the cosmic rays coursing through us all the time...

The audio tour said that it would take 1.5 hours to walk the museum. I spent almost 4 hours and still missed some parts. This is a great museum and well worth the visit. I'm not sure if cameras are officially allowed but I took photos and nobody raised any complaint.

Yes

A huge building with exhibits from many different eras and fields of engineering. It is defineatly worth a visit, but if you are really into technology and want to enjoy every single piece shown here, plan the entire day.

Yes

A huge museum of impressive artefacts which are very well presented. It is great value for money for the price. Only reservation is that it needs more information in other languages.

Yes

Must see. It may be me, but it seemed as though the displays related to WWII were mostly lacking English translations. Good for them for not ignoring Nazi technology, but .1 point off for inconstant translations.
