Aircraft and models: wander amongst numerous original aircraft and trace the history of flight in the first half of the 20th century – a time when aviation experienced rapid technological progress.

Featuring numerous original aircraft in all shapes and sizes, the Historic Aviation exhibition is a real eye-catcher. On Level 1 and in a gallery on the mezzanine above, the focus is on the history of flight during the first half of the 20th century, when aviation experienced rapid technological progress. A key theme is how the two world wars influenced the direction of development. Level 1 covers the period of the Weimar Republic, the years from 1933 to the end of World War II, and an overview of aircraft engines. The gallery, on the other hand, is dedicated to model and glider flight. Between the impressive exhibits, including a Junkers F13 and a Messerschmitt Me 262, media stations and hands-on exhibits trace the fascinating history of aviation.
