  Raspberry World - Postcards from Europe - Deutsches Museum, Munich
The Deutsches Museum is a huge German museum dedicated to the history of science and technology.
What strikes me about the museum is how beautiful some of the things are which fall into the realm of "science and technology." Old airplanes, old cars, fancy painted boats, kites, holograms, and textiles.
The Deutsches Museum has an extensive collection of historic musical instruments, as well, and when we visited we attended a concert of Mozart, van Beeck, and other composers, played on instruments contemporaneous with the compositions.

Munich was the world's first city to have a projection planetarium – the legendary Carl Zeiss Model I. The first idea of such a machine that would show the starry sky as star gazers would experience it out in the open came from Dr. Max Wolf (1863-1932), then director of the Heidelberg Observatory.
After some initial difficulties, the breakthrough idea of a projection machine was born that would project the stars, Sun, Moon and the planets from the center of a spherical dome.
The first planetarium on the globe was inaugurated on May 7th, 1925, on the occasion of the opening of a new building of the German Museum.
