28 Jun Introducing the Limited Attendance Experiences: Museum of Technology
Located across from Potsdamer Platz, the Museum of Technology catches visitors’ attention even from far away. A C-47 “Skytrain” suspended from the façade of the museum welcomes visitors. The plane, also known in Germany as a „Raisin Bomber“, is a lasting monument to Berlin’s gratitude for the Berlin airlift of 1948-49. Inside, the museum shows exhibits from aviation, shipping, railways, the motor industry, film technology, computer history and much more.
This experience will be offered on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. The scientific talk prior to the guided tour through the museum of technology will focus on one day on topics from the section IACA/PENSION and on the other day on topics from the section ASTIN. All details of the lectures and the speakers will be announced in due course.
With a floor space of more than 25,000 square meters the museum of technology invites you on a journey through the cultural history of technology. The permanent exhibition shows locomotives and planes, looms, suitcase and jewelry production and machine tools, computers, radios and cameras, diesel engines, steam engines, scientific instruments, paper machines, printing presses and much more. Daily demonstrations and hands-on activities inspire you to participate. This limited attendance experience is ideal for exploration.
