The Lake of Bodensee is connected with the history of the Zeppelin. The count of Zeppelin was living here and has constructed the famous Zeppelin here. If you enter the museum you will learn a lot of the whole history - the good one and the bad one. First of all you should look at the 2 movies ( access... More

I have always been a bit curious about the zeppelin era, so it was interesting that they pulled together a whole museum about it. It's not huge, but there's still a lot and a lot to learn from. The exhibitions are nice, and the objects they collected are interesting. The layout is excellent, as you get to walk through the... More

The museum wasn't very well laid out, and there was no obvious order to things. I found it hard to find the way into the Zeppelin model, and was shouted at in German (she spoke no English) by an attendant when I accidentally tried to go in the exit. Signage!!!

Incredibly well done.....this museum blew our minds. The full size reconstruction of part of a passenger Zeppelin. the interactive displays, the photographic history and the memorabilia made it a wonderful experience. We found that 3 hours was hardly long enough there. Anyone remotely interested in aviation history or world history should make time for a visit.

Very immersive experience. Well documented. I spent almost 3 hours in this museum. I recommend to buy the combined ticket with the Dornier museum.

This museum, currently located in an old train station building with a newer wing, is really worthwhile. Almost everybody has heard about Zeppelin aircraft, but here you get a chance to understand the phantastic vision and engineering that went into their construction. Among other exhibits, the museum has a reconstruction of part of one of the big passenger carrier Zeppelins,... More
