Deutches Museum of Science and Technology Aeronautics Collection, Munich, Germany

A huge and fascinating traditional museum on an island in the River Isar. Their collection of aircraft is so large that they have a separate, larger collection at Oberschleissheim, 10 miles to the north (see my separate page).
