Deutsches Museum

On Tuesday we went to the Deutsches Museum. It is the largest science and technology museum in the world. It was huge, we spent the whole afternoon there and hardly scratched the surface.

The museum is located on an island in the middle of a river in southern Munich. It was really easy to get to, they have a great train system in Munich.

There was a large aerospace section. That is where we spent most of our time.

In this photo, bottom to top - a Me 262, a Me 163 (remember Daniel's license plate) and a V-1 rocket.

Otto Lilienthal's old glider from the 1890's.

V-2 rocket engine burner cups. It is kind of fun to be able to walk around a museum and not have to read the signs all the time to know what everything is.

This is a great poem I found in the physics section.

Later I stumbled upon this gem. I got a kick out of this floating spinning ball, so I took a video. Enjoy.

Once the museum was closing we went and got a bite to eat. Afterwards we swung by Fabians to drop off some things and then went back to Oktoberfest. I will post that adventure next. -Eric
