Founded in 1903 by the engineer Oskar von Miller, the Deutsches Museum in Munich is now one of the most important museums of science and technology worldwide.
With 55,000 square metres of exhibition space and an extensive stock of valuable original technical and scientific exhibits, it is not only one of the largest museums in the world, but also one of the most successful, attracting almost 1.5 million visitors a year. It presents the technical and scientific achievements of the last 100 years in an exciting and accessible way, whilst also reflecting the related process of social change. The opening of Kids’ Kingdom on 6 February 2003 and the launch on 11 May 2003 of the first stage in the development of the new Transport Centre represented first major steps into the Museum’s second century.
The Deutsches Museum is part of the PENCIL project and is running the "Traffic and Climate Change" pilot project.
