Audio guide

For adults we offer an audio guide on the subject of technical revolutions in English, French, Polish and Turkish for a charge of Euro 2.

The audio guide focuses on the way technological developments over the past 200 years have changed our world view, our pace of life, and the way industrial societies live. Visitors also learn interesting facts about the historic museum location on their way round. In addition to numerous original recordings, including some of Ernst Reuter and Konrad Zuse, the audio guide contains interviews with contemporary witnesses and archive material, such as a BBC Second World War report on Germany’s ban on listening to foreign radio stations.
The route is suitable for wheelchair users, and for those who are hard of hearing there are induction loops as well as a written text.

Groups are requested to book in advance. Please phone ++49 (0)30-90 254 124 or e-mail.

Guided tours

We also offer a range of different guided tours:

a) Thematic tours

People and technology
In this tour you encounter objects and stories associated with people who all had a special connection with technology – as inventors, workers, a family on a ship, pilots or soldiers.

Technology and nature
On this tour you visit the exhibitions and the museum park. You see how man’s technology both uses and destroys the forces and resources of nature and learn what the relationship is between the two.

Technology and war
Is war the mother of invention? Or does technology merely serve the purposes we give it? On this tour you visit the railway, shipping and aviation exhibitions and see how military technology developed and what it has been used for.

If you like to explore the exhibition on your own - without joining a guided tour - our leaflet (PDF-file, 374 kB) may be helpful.

b) Overview tour to the museum’s highlights

c) Tours of selected departments

All tours last one hour.
Tours cost EUR 60 for a group of up to 20 (plus applicable admission charge).
