Science, Science, Science – a day to remember at the Deutsche Museum, Munich
The Deutsche Museum is ostensibly a Science & Technology museum that resides on the banks of the river that runs through the centre of Munich, it has main key attractions but we simply had to start with the wonderful mining section.. quite literally down a mine shaft!
The mines take you through coal, salt, open cast and even older techniques… each giving you a visual representation as to how it has changed over history… how mechanised it has become, yet how brave each miner must have been to return to the pit day after day!

Onwards and upwards as we emerged from the earth and into the other areas of this huge museum… it really would take longer than the 5-6hrs we spent to see it all… and you would still probably return for more the next day!
And that is exactly what both girls did, from practical lightning displays on realistic homesteads via the high voltage area through the ability to get inside a giant human cell (somewhere nearing the size of our Adria motorhome!). But there as more, aviation departments, astronomy, musical instruments, physics… and more!

Will we return to Munich, almost certainly! This city has huge amount still to discover – the Olympic Park, the toy museum, St Peters church.. and many more! We are delighted to have had the chance to sample this beautiful part of Bavaria and we are set on retuning soon! For now, Heidelberg awaits tomorrow and then Cologne!
