German Technical Museum in Berlin

German Technical Museum in Berlin

I visited this museum the year before last, but I still could not get together and describe what I saw. Now this happy time has come, and I want to tell you about this very large polytechnic museum. Its official name is the German Technical Museum (Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin), it was opened in the not so distant 1983 under the name of the Museum of Transport and Technology. Since 1996, the museum carries its current name.
This entry provides a general overview of its exposure, for "priming". If this museum is of interest to the respected public, then at the end of the recording there are links to photo reports about the most interesting (in my opinion, by itself) sections of this worthy museum.

1. The main entrance to the German Technical Museum in Berlin:

2. Above the roof is a Douglas C-47 Skytrain, which participated in the Berlin Air Bridge, designed to overcome the Soviet blockade of West Berlin in 1948-49. As ordered pouring rain. A colleague holds an umbrella, and I take a picture:

3. So, by the way, it looked like the unloading of airplanes arriving in Berlin from the western occupation zones of Germany.On some days, then, 8 thousand tons of cargo were transported with approximately 900 flights, while up to 100 aircraft were in the air at the same time:

7. This plane could still fly and fly, but, once hittinggreedymuseum workers, he froze in his last flight. By the way, this is the very Cessna where Matthias Rust landed on May 28, 1987 in Moscow, not far from Red Square. If someone else remembers, it caused a big scandal then, the Minister of Defense of the USSR and the commander of the air defense were fired:

“At 18:30 Rust flew to Moscow. Here the weather was windless and cloudy. He planned to land directly in the Kremlin or on Red Square, but this turned out to be impossible. After making a few laps, he caught a cycle of traffic lights at the Big Moskvoretsky bridge. Decreasing above the street Bolshaya Ordynka, his plane, almost touching the roofs of the cars, got on the bridge and rode to St. Basil's Cathedral. At 19:10 Rust got out of the plane and began to give autographs.About an hour later he was arrested "(from Wikipedia).

Then the visitor to the museum can start moving in all different directions, because after paying for the entrance and passage through the special turnstiles, a variety of sections begin. Here is their sample list:

- Chemistry and pharmaceuticals;
- Power;
- Aviation and space;
- Shipbuilding and sea transport;
- Urban and road transport;
- Railway transport;
- Photo, film and video equipment;
- Mathematics and computer science;
- Communication systems;
- Papermaking;
- Machines and machines;
- Textile technology.

Among other things, the museum has a separate exhibition dedicated to sugar, as well as the museum of brewing. Consider it alldisgracediversity within the framework of one day is absolutely impossible, therefore our team consisting of two persons decided to concentrate on three sections of this museum - aviation and space, maritime business and railway transport.
