If you happen to be in Munich, make sure not to miss a visit to the Deutsches Museum (German Museum), one of the most interesting museums in the world for science and technology.
Freude am Schauen und Begreifen ist die schönste Gabe der Natur. (The joy of looking and understanding is the most beautiful gift of nature.) ― Albert Einstein
Once inside, an entire day is not enough to explore all the different sections. True highlights are: the simulated lightning show; a replica of a mineshaft and the star show in the planetarium.
In addition to this, one can discover everything about nano- biotechnology, astronomy, musical instruments and much more. Moreover, kids can experience physics and technology in a hands-on workshop.
If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself. ― Albert Einstein
The museum offers more than 30 exhibitions covering 25,000 square metres of floor space, throughout which one can find a wealth of masterpieces of science and technology.
Have a virtual tour here.
Among the many digital offers (in German) which you can find here, one can also find video podcasts from the series “Wissenschaft für Jedermann (Science for everybody)” with science lectures for a non-scientific audience (in German).
On July 8th at 7 pm, a YouTube Live Stream with Prof. Dr. Harald Lesch “Der Stoff aus dem die Kohlen sind.“ Harald Lesch is a famous scientist and journalist in Germany because of his ability to explain difficult topics to everybody.
