The German Museum (Deutsches Museum) ranks among the nation's most visited museums. On an island in the city centre, it traces the development of science and technology from its origins, through fascinating hands-on models, experiments and audiovisual displays.
Founded by the engineer Oskar von Miller in 1903, the museum is not only one of the largest in the world, but also one of the most popular, with more than 1.3 million visitors every year. It offers 50 exhibitions, covering a huge range of subjects and all aimed at making scientific develpments accessible to the public.

Highlights include the recreation of coal-mining conditions, the astronomy exhibition (with an observatory, a planetarium and a solar telescope), a collection of musical instruments from throughout the ages and a kids' corner, dedicated to bringing science to the young.
