We had a day at this amazing museum on our trip to Munich. There is so much to do and see and a lot of it is interactive. We spent virtually the whole day there as it was so interesting. Highly...

I spend a day with my two teens at the Museum. It’s very nice and I fully recommend it. One day is not enough to take a deep dive to all the exhibition piece

We worked our way through the museum, from the top floor (space) down to the basement (mining), and it is clear where the museum has spent money and where it is in sad need of attention. This is a very big museum where you can spend more than 1 day if you wanted to! The museum has thousands of objects on display, all aimed at science and technology. It includes several different floors and different themes throughout the building. Totally recommended if you’re into science or technology related things!
A very cool museum dedicated to advancements in technology throughout somewhat recent history. 4-5 starts because even after three hours there was probably more than half the museum to see, but it wasn't interesting enough at that point to keep me there. I particularly liked the aviation, power, and astronautic exhibits.
