Yes, two video guides featuring German Sign Language are integrated into the “Deutsches Technikmuseum” app. The video tour “Technical Revolutions” takes adults on a journey through exciting exhibits from the fields of transportation, communication and production. For children there is a one-hour discovery tour with Lina and her buddy Leo that addresses the theme of “mobility.”

Most exhibitions present the texts in both German and English. However, there are older exhibitions that are only in German.

Dogs are not allowed in the museum except in the case of guide and service dogs.

Eating and drinking in the exhibition areas is not allowed. The museum's picnic areas are currently closed due to the Corona pandemic. Food and drink that visitors have brought with them can be enjoyed in the Museum Park. In addition, the staffs in all of our restaurants will be happy to welcome you during opening hours.

Activities for Families and Children

On average, visitors spend about 2.5 hours at the museum. Our exhibitions are so diverse and there are so many experiments in the Science Center Spectrum that you can easily spend a whole day with us.

You can find a timetable for all our current events in the Calendar (in German).

Almost all age groups will find something to look at and marvel at in the Deutsches Technikmuseum. However, some children are somewhat daunted because the museum is so big and so loud. It is often helpful to keep the first visit moderately short and targeted to a specific exhibit: In our experience, children of daycare age are particularly fascinated by our large objects (airplanes, ships, locomotives). In addition to the various exhibitions, school children especially love the Science Center Spectrum with its more than 250 experiments.

Check out our free activities (in German) and events (in German) before you visit. 

Our audio guided tours are integrated into the app. Due to current renovation work, some tours are only of limited use. The tours are available in German, English, Polish, French and Turkish. An audio guide is also available as a video guide in German sign language. Audio or video devices for loan are not provided by the museum.

In addition, there are three quiz tours for the permanent exhibitions “Aviation,” “Shipping” and “The Network” in German, English, Polish and German Sign Language.

The app “Deutsches Technikmuseum” is available free of charge in the App Stores.

There is playground equipment for children to climb on in the Museum Park of the Deutsches Technikmuseum. You will also find several playgrounds and a skate park in the adjacent "Park am Gleisdreieck".
