Museum of Technology or Deutsches Technikmuseum
Learn the history of German aviation,film technology and brewing at this hands-on celebration of science and technology where planes and trains are on display.

The Pergamon is the most visited museum in Germany.The hall containing the famed Pergamon Altar is closed until 2019,but the many reproductions of famed archeological and classical sculptures will intrigue kids with an interest in the ancient world.
This visually dynamic museum blends cutting-edge architecture with a top-notch Egyptian collection.The showstopper is the bust of Queen Nefertiti,her long neck and sloe eyes as gorgeous as any movie star.
Even before you step inside,the imaginative building designed by Daniel Libeskind will have you thinking about the repercussions of the Holocaust.Jewish life is simultaneously celebrated and mourned.The Holocaust exhibits are deeply thought-provoking,but there are lighter exhibits,too,such as a display of Christmas/Chanukah memorabilia created for mixed-marriage holiday celebrations.
