The German Museum of Technology (Deutsches Technikmuseum) was founded in 1982 and operates in the tradition of the many technical-historical collections that were housed in Berlin up to WWII; the museum actually took over the stocks of some of these former museums after the war.
The museum is located on the grounds of the former Anhalter Train Yard and invites visitors on an exciting journey of discovery through the cultural history of technology. On roughly 25,000 square metres, visitors will find exhibitions on communications technology, production technology, energy technology and transport technology. In the museum's new glass building, the history of shipping and aviation comes to life. The library and historical archive are also located here.  
In 2011, the permanent exhibition "Mensch in Fahrt – unterwegs mit Auto & Co" ("Man on the road – On the Road with Cars et al") was opened on the former loading road, where visitors can now see carriages, bicycles, motorcycles and 30 automobiles from different epochs. Two historical locomotive sheds house an additional 40 railway cars. There are also wind and water mills and a brewery at the museum park.  
With a programme that includes the Science Center Spectrum, daily tours of historical machines and models and a wide range of other guided tours, the museum is a fun and favoured learning destination for young and old.
