German Museum of Technology Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating The German Museum of Technology in Berlin is a fantastic place for anyone interested in how technology has shaped our world. With tons of hands-on exhibits, from early airplanes, ships and trains to the world's first computer, it's a fun and educational experience for all ages. Definitely recommend checking it out. While it's already impressive, to truly captivate modern kids raised on YouTube, adding more interactive exhibits with VR and other cutting-edge technologies would be amazing. With some innovation, this museum could be even more mind-blowing for young minds.

5 Star Rating This huge museum has a lot to offer for everyone irrespective of their age. It was almost the whole day we spent there. A small park also exists for the kids to relax. Family tickets are cheaper compared to other museums. Limited free parking spaces but we were lucky to get one. Recommended!

5 Star Rating An incredible technical museum for both kids and adults! There are so many things to see and do. We recommend having at least 3 hours there to see it all. The ticket prices were very reasonable and we felt that everything was nice, clean and the interactive exhibitions were working fine. We look forward to coming back again to experience it all.

5 Star Rating Interesting place to visit, but you need to dedicate at least half a day to go throigh all the exhibits. Plenty of the old steam locomotives and newer electric engines made a big impression on me. The aircrafts are also nicely presented. Another interesting part is the place where you can see the old cars from last century. I really recommend to visit this museum while staying in Berlin.

5 Star Rating Simply the very best Museum in all of Berlin for the tech Nerd in your Life. From an impressive selection of old airplanes (an old Junkers to me is a childhood favorite) to what likely is my most favorite nautical exhibition - far more on the technical side of different ship types, navigation methods - I spent hours in these parts and still come back regularly to indulge. Bring some time and enjoy the history of mankind's ingenuity and appreciate how far we have come from sticks and stones
