  • The Deutsches Museum is among the world‘s most important museums of science and technology. To maintain that status, the museum is currently modernising its exhibitions and the main building. For the first time in its history, the Deutsches Museum is undergoing a full overhaul from top to bottom. More than 50 exhibitions are being completely redesigned or updated.

    The modernisation project is scheduled for completion by 2025. As well as being one of the largest and most important institutions of its kind, the Deutsches Museum will also be one of the most modern museums anywhere in the world. The museum will remain open throughout the modernisa- tion project. More than half of the exhibition space – about 25,000 square metres – will be accessible to visitors as the work proceeds. Our branch museums, the Ver- kehrszentrum and Flugwerft Schleissheim, which are not affected by the project, will also be fully accessible at all times.

    THE PROJECT TO DATE The modernisation of the Deutsches Museum is well under way. The facades, roofs and windows are com- plete. The observatories have been fully refurbished, and in the sixth-floor dome one of the world‘s most modern planetariums has been treating astronomy fans to spectacular displays since reopening in 2015.

    GIANT STEPS TOWARDS A BRIGHT FUTURE

    2015–16 CLEARING OUT THE EXHIBITION SPACES

    The Deutsches Museum has an enormous number of very large exhibits. These objects have to be dismantled, moved out of the building and stored in depositories. Some aircraft will also be taken to Flug- werft Schleissheim and some vehicles to the Verkehrszentrum transport museum, where they will remain on view. Other high- lights of the collections will be relocated within the main exhibition building on the Museumsinsel.

    2016 REBUILDING THE RIVER WALL

    The Deutsches Museum is built on the Museumsinsel, an island in the Isar River. The lower sections of the building are frequently at risk of flooding and water damage. Consequently, a flood barrier is being constructed around the building.

    Dismantling of aircraft in the exhibition building in preparation for transport (below). They will be on display at the Flugwerft Schleissheim until 2019 (left).

    Due to the construction work, the access to the New Technologies Centre must be relocated. A connecting walkway will be constructed on the museum‘s outer facade.

    BEGINNING IN 2016 START OF THE REFURBISHMENT WORK

    The first section of the building will be completely gutted and then rebuilt to meet current fire safety standards. New staircases will be added as well as an underground fire escape tunnel, an entirely new electric power network, a ventilation system, uniform lighting through the buildings, modern lifts, WLAN and new toilets.

    STARTING IN 2018 WORK ON NEW EXHIBITIONS

    2020–25 MODERNISATION OF SECOND SECTION

    After major refurbishments in the second section, the entire museum will be re-opened for the 100th anniversary of the exhibition building – fully renovated with entirely new exhibitions.

    The building will be fully refurbished and modernised, but will remain open at all times.

  • ROBOTICS

    Following in the mechanical footsteps of the industrial robots that made their appearance back in the 1960s, more and more service robots are becoming part of our everyday lives. This exhibition shows the current state of robotic tech- nology, future applications and the possible effects on society.

    ELECTRONICS

    Electronic technologies are having a greater impact on our society at present than any other pheno- menon. Electronic devices are constantly becoming smaller and more mobile, and the number of poten- tial applications is increasing at enormous speed. This exhibition clearly communicates how electronics have come to define the pace of modern life and illustrates the related risks and opportunities.

    CHEMISTRY

    The exhibition shows the important role modern chemistry plays in our everyday lives – sometimes in perhaps unexpected areas. You‘ll find historical research laboratories as well as interactive expe- rimentation modules. A magnificent diorama will enable visitors to explore how chemical methods can be used to solve crimes.

    MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS

    From the cembalo to the synthesizer: The Deutsches Museum has a unique collection of musical instruments. The new exhibition will show how concepts and conditions for instruments and performance have changed over the centuries.

    AGRICULTURE AND NUTRITION

    From historical Alpine farmhouse – to a state-of- the-art harvesting robot: The new exhibition will present a very accessible exploration of the tech- nical and social conditions underlying agricultural production. Naturally, due consideration is also given to the demands of a growing global popu- lation, sustainability and economics.

    NEW EXHIBITIONS The first new permanent exhibitions will open their doors in 2019. They will incorporate years of planning and preparation by teams of experts, applying the latest methods and technologies, and will be designed down to the last detail. At the same time, new demonstrations will be built and exhibits restored in preparation for the move back into the exhibition building. Here is a brief overview of some of the future exhibitions.

    Modern chemistry plays an essential role in our everyday lives – in such diverse areas as sports and leisure, nutrition, cosmetics and construction. Feeding a growing global population: The exhibition explores one of the greatest

    challenges of our time.

    An entirely new exhibition with a modern look: electronics.
