The Deutsches Museum is actually not about Germany per se, but rather devoted to science and technology, and it's enormous - in fact, Munich's largest as well as the world's largest of its kind. Built in 1903 on an island in the Isar River which then became known as Museuminsel, it does an admirable job of cover these subjects from prehistory to the space age, with notable exhibits including the first automobile; the laboratory where the atom was first split; the first electric dynamo; and a reproduction of the famous neolithic paintings of Spain's Altamira Cave. Huge as this is, there are two additional annexes, the Aviation Museum at a former airport north of the city, and the Transport Museum.
