For the lockers you need a €1 or €2 coin as a deposit. Smaller bags and backpacks may be taken into the museum. You can find information about the size of the lockers in the FAQs at the bottom of this page.

    Free wi-fi on the Museum Island

    M-WLAN is available in the Museum Courtyard, a service provided by the City of Munich together with the Stadtwerke München. 
    In the museum building itself, we can currently only offer the Deutsches Museum WLAN at the cloakroom. After the completion of the modernisation currently underway, wi-fi will be available everywhere.
    In the library and archive we offer BayernWLAN for all users.

Books and Supporting Material


G. Hartl, K. Märker, J. Teichmann, G. Wolfschmidt


Wie kann man Astronomie am spannendsten erklären? Wie die Abteilung des Museums stellt auch das Buch allgemein interessierende Fragen: Was sehen wir am Himmel? Was sind Sterne? Wie entwickeln sie sich? Woher kommt die Energie der Sonne? Wie sieht unser Planeten-System aus? Wie haben sich Kosmos und Leben entwickelt? Und woher wissen wir das alles?
