A superb Science and Technical Museum, with an enormous range of well-chosen exhibits, clearly displayed and with good descriptive text in German and English.

Note: The museum can become exceptionally busy on national holidays, with long queues for tickets.

In addition to the main museum, there are two branches in the city: the Verkehrszentrum (for land transport exhibits) and the Flugwerft Schleissheim (aviation).
