In the first half of the 20th century, aviation experienced rapid technological progress. This was influenced by the two world wars. During this guided tour, we take a closer look at the Historic Aviation exhibition. The exhibition covers aviation during the Weimar Republic and the years from 1933 to the end of World War II, and provides an overview of aircraft engines and propellers. The gallery is dedicated to model and glider flight. In addition to our special original exhibits – from the Junkers F13 and Ju 52 to the Messerschmitt Me 262 and V2 rocket – you can trace aviation’s history thanks to numerous media stations and hands-on exhibits, such as model flight and glider flight simulators.
