The German Museum of Technology is a museum for everyone. The family museum offers its visitors an exciting journey of discovery through the cultural history of technology. It is located on the historic site of the Anhalter freight station and the Gleisdreieck transportation hub. The "raisin bomber" on the façade has since become an internationally recognized landmark.
Its 28,500 square meter premises is filled with exhibitions covering aeronautics, navigation, railways, automobility, telecommunications, computer history, the world of sugar and much more. The relevance of all such technological developments to people's everyday lives is always a main focus of the presentations. The museum is also a place where technology - its history, its present and its future - is examined witha critical eye. Technology can be communaly tried out, understood and discussed within the museum setting. Current technology-related topics such as climate change, energy transition or our future mobility are also addressed. 
With the Science Center Spectrum, daily demonstrations and guided tours, workshops and hands-on activities, the museum is a place of learning and experience for young and old
