  • If someone visits the Munich and does not visit it then it means he has not visited the Munich really in its completeness. It is open on all days and weekend unless some public holiday. Good for children to realize how we have this new technology in place in current time. It gives the impression of evolution on technology and human development.
  • Simply a great Museum with lots of exhibits about physics, astronomy, computer science and history, pharmaceutics, nanotechnology, and much more. The high voltage presentation is always a must-see. Estimated time to spend there well to really absorb and learn many things are probably a few days, so plan it well if you're enthusiastic about learning.
