Technisches Museum information
Opened in 1918, the Technical Museum is dedicated to advances in the fields of science and technology. There are loads of hands-on gadgets allowing you to conduct experiments, but the most interesting aspect of the museum is its displays from past ages. A Mercedes Silver Arrow from 1950, a model-T Ford from 1923 and penny-farthing bicycles to name a few.
Its musical instrument collection is small and focuses mainly on keyboard instruments, so if this is your main interest, head for the Neue Burg museums instead. The permanent exhibition is complemented by temporary ones, and overall it’s an interesting museum for the average visitor, but of course anyone with an engineering mind will absolutely love it. Das Mini section has loads of kids toys and activities and is specifically aimed at two- to six-year-olds.
