A science and technology museum like no other (according to travelers), the Deutsches Museum brims with exhibits on everything from transportation to mining, bridge building and musical instruments. But across the six floors and almost 12 miles of halls, you'll also find an Internet cafe, an expansive planetarium and the Kinderreich, a section geared toward children that teaches them about science and technology through interactive exhibits. You'll also find the Center for Transportation, the Verkehrszentrum, which for an additional admission fee you can view an array of transportation-related exhibits.

Recent travelers praised the diversity and careful display of the exhibits, saying visitors of all ages will be sure to enjoy. Located in an imposing building along the Isar River, you can find the Deutsches Museum off the Isartor S-bahn stop. The museum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets cost 11 euros ($13) for adults and 4 euros (less than $5) for children ages 6 to 15. Kids 5 and younger get in for free. For additional information on exhibits, events and more, visit the museum's website.
