If you’re one of those people for whom science is an unfathomable turn off, a visit to the Deutsches Museum might just show you that physics and engineering are more fun than you thought. Spending a few hours in this temple to technology is an eye-opening journey of discovery and the exhibitions and demonstrations will certainly be a hit with young minds.

There are tons of interactive displays (including glass blowing and paper-making), live demonstrations and experiments, model coal and salt mines, and engaging sections on cave paintings, geodesy, microelectronics and astronomy. In fact, it can be pretty overwhelming after a while, so it's best to prioritise what you want to see. The place to entertain little ones is the fabulous KinderReich (Childrens Kingdom) where 1000 activities, from a kid-size mouse wheel to a fully explorable fire engine, await.

The museum's collection is so huge that some sections have been moved to separate locations. Vehicles are now in the Verkehrszentrum , while aircraft are at the Flugwerft Schleissheim . Combination tickets to all three museums cost €15 and may be used on separate days
