More About Deutsches Museum
The Deutsches Museum (German Museum, officially Deutsches Museum von Meisterwerken der Naturwissenschaft und Technik (English: German Museum of Masterpieces of Science and Technology) in Munich, Germany, is the world’s largest science and technology museum, with approximately 28,000 objects on display from 50 fields of science and technology. It attracts around 1.5 million tourists each year.
On the suggestion of Oskar von Miller, the museum was formed on June 28, 1903, at a meeting of the Association of German Engineers (VDI). It is Munich’s largest museum. The museum was formerly the site of pop and rock concerts like The Who, Jimi Hendrix, and Elton John.
The Deutsches Museum’s main site is a small island in the Isar River that has been used as a rafting wood source since the Middle Ages. Because the island was often flooded previous to the construction of the Sylvensteinspeicher, there were no structures on the island before 1772.
From Ludwigsbrücke, the Deutsches Museum may be viewed.
The Isar barracks were established on the island in 1772, and after the 1899 floods, they were renovated with flood protection. The city council announced in 1903 that the island would be donated to the newly constructed Deutsches Museum. The island was renamed Museumsinsel after it was renamed Kohleninsel (coal island).
