Deutsches Technikmuseum

10963 Berlin, Germany
15 Kudos
While cruising around Berlin in one of the frequent boat tours we glanced at an old plane. It is part of an outdoor exhibit of the "Deutsches Technikmuseum", a museum for science and technology. The museum is home to exhibitions on aviation, shipping, railways, the automobile, film technology, computer history, the role of the chemical and pharmaceutical industries in our lives, and much more. They offer interactive sessions for the kids (and adults) and have a large collection of old TVs, cars, trains and whatnot. We wanted to go back after the boat tour but found something else that kept us busy and ultimately forgot about it. Such a pity! Maybe next time?
