i didn't realize there are three different sites for the deutsche
museum.  it is actually much more than the one site were you first go.

the main one we with all the engines is the industry bldg.  it has
steam, air and ic engines.  then equally interesting areas on mining,
metalurgy, petroleum, natural gas, electric power generation and
distribution, boats, and some planes, helicopters and sectioned
turbine engines.  also the first german rocket, with fabulous wood

then there is a second museum that is just transport.  that is where
the imbert is.  there is also the largest steam train i've ever seen.
you walk in the door and the first thing is benz's motorwagen of 1880\
or so.  the first motorvehicle.  then a ton of fabulous motorcycles
and cars.  an exhibit of wheels too.  turns out there are a few
different ways to invent them.

then there is another site that is just flight.  maybe aerospace too.
must have derigerables.  not sure about that one yet.

en toto, it's the most complete physical encyclopedia of industry i've
ever seen.  i'm staying a few more days to learn some things.  it is
extremely efficient schooling.
