You could spend the rest of your life going through this place and reading all the informational write ups. I clocked walking 7 miles from start to finish - my feet were tired. Recommend going to the 6th floor and working your way down to save energy. Whatever your interest in current or old technology, you’ll find a room to fulfill your curiosity. I especially liked the Aviation room, though winding your way through the claustrophobic Mine was also cool. Honestly, a full day of activity, especially on a rainy day.

A truly remarkable experience.
You can find pretty much everything tech-related here. This, perhaps, is the biggest science museum I've ever been (and I've been in plenty).

Many exhibits were interactive, and the staff was highly informative and kind.

We worked our way through the musuem, from the top floor (space) down to the basement (mining), and it is clear where the museum has spent money and where it is in sad need of attention.
The space section is badly outdated with numerous exhibits mentioning hope for studies to be carried out in 1995! Areas such as aviation and mining were much better, its a shame the rest of the museum isn't as interesting.

A gigantic amount of human technological progress over history is on display here. The underground mining tunnels were a highlight.

A very big museum! For me, an old mine, real ships and old submarines were the most impressive! There are a lot of visitors during weekend, and you need almost the entire day to see all expositions.

This is a large museum. So make sure you give it time. We were there most of the day. Interesting to see things that I still have on display ie a Sinclair ZX 81, a NES And A Gameboy!

Definitely a must if you are a science lover, or just a curious person who want to know a bit of everything.

Haven't seen all the floors as I got tired after spending (probably) 2 hours just on the top 2 floors - the astronomy just got me thinking. So, I'm not quite sure if it's a one-day thingy or rather a two days of planned visit.

In addition, I was quite disappointed to see that some of the labels hadn't had English versions... As a non-German speaker, that made it almost impossible for me to read the stories behind the "artifacts". Some "out of order" machinery got me a bit upset.

Otherwise, the interactive part of all rooms is just a brilliant idea. Got me feeling like a small kid playing with some high-level toys. Incredible! Definitely try (almost) everything you can get your hands on.

What an absolutely terrible experience. Most of the displays were not in English and part of the building is being renovated and so exhibits are closed. They didn't tell me this before we entered and were happy to take my €14. I then spoke to the manager, conveying my disappointment and he basically said "we are in Germany, not England" and shrugged his shoulders. This, in my opinion, is not only unprofessional, but racist and rude.

He assured me it would be better in May (not helpful, when I'm visiting in January), but then walked away saying that the museum is old and I can expect everything in English. I did not expect this - I simply expected to be warned that it would be an expensive museum which I would be unable to understand.

AVOID unless you have an IQ of 150 or over and speak German.

It seems like this musueum has had the same exhibition for more than 50 years. You have a number of objects on display with small signs telling e.g. "This steam machine ifs from 1989 from Karlsruhe". And nothing else. No movement so you can see how things works, no videos , no interaction. A few musical instruments are displayed, but yoiu cannot hear how they sound. It is such an oldfashioned way of having a museum. It is NOT worth a visit.

So much to see in this museum that you could spend a whole day here. Lots to do and each generation will not get bored. You have to get tickets online and the cafe provides a nice rest point.
