Deutsches Museum & surrounds

The Deutsches Museum (German Museum) in Munich is always a great destination on a rainy day. One can easily spend days exploring all sorts of topics; during my 2010 trip I spent hours in the photography exhibit, checking out the evolution of cameras and film, presented in a fabulous, state-of-the-art display. Since the weather was nice we decided to go for a short stroll along the Isar river instead, taking in parts of an external exhibit – the solar system. In the museum’s courtyard there is a large gold sculpture representing the sun, and all over Munich the planets of our solar system are displayed at scale size, and scale distance from the sun. I somehow missed Mercury, but we ventured past Venus, Earth and Mars, and the rest were too far for us to walk with oldies in tow ;)

A beautiful autumn day, well spent.
