Germany is notably famous for its industrial and technical know how. So it might be a good idea to visit the German Technic museum huh?

My experience, Explo description: 

The museum has been created in 1982. It was formely the Museum for Transport and Technology. With an exhibition area of over 50,000 square meters, this museum is one of the largest technical museums in the world.

Please note, hanging over the entrance, a mythic DC3 aircraft, symbol of the 324 days long airlift that supplied Berlin in 1948-1949.

The collection is divided in 14 departments : oldtimers, locomotives and planes, looms, suitcase and jewellery production and machine tools, computers, radios and cameras, Diesel engines, steam engines, scientific instruments, paper machines, printing presses...

My personal recommendations: 

Use the audio guide (in English, French, German...). It costs only 2 euros and it makes the visit much more interesting !

How getting there: 

10963 Berlin-Kreuzberg
"Möckernbrücke" station :(Underground lines U1, U7).
"Gleisdreieck" station :(Underground lines U1, U2).
S-Bahn station : "Anhalter Bahnhof" (S1, S2, S25).
Good parking possibilities in the multi-storey car park "Gleisdreieck".
