SJ on the Move

Munich - Day 3

On our last full day in Munich we headed to the Deutsches Museum, which is sort of like all the Smithsonian Museums rolled into one. There's 3-4 huge floors on aeronautics, there's a wing on trains and automobiles, there's a couple of floors on sea travel - including one of the first U-boats, and much more.

SJ has been really into planes and helicopters recently, so she had a lot of fun at the museum. However, she might have had the most fun in the play area of the museum cafeteria.

After the Deutsches Museum, we finished up the day at the Residenz, which is where the family that ruled Bavaria for like a gazillion years lived. If you're ever in Munich and have the opportunity to go to the Residenz - don't.

It's not that it's an awful place, it is just room after room after room after room. They had several rooms in a row where they had displayed every piece of China from a particular set.

After you've seen one place setting, seeing another 200 of the exact same place setting has little marginal value - wouldn't you think? Evidently not to the curators of the Residenz.

Ethan needs to know--did you see the Adler, the 1835 steam engine?

Unfortnately not. We hardly got past he airplanes and helicopters! But, we did see a steam engined train in Nuremberg that seemed to be a tourist train. It was really neat.
