Center for the History of Air and Space Travel

Land which used to belong to the Oberschleissheim aircraft repair works has recently been turned into the Center for the History of Air and Space Travel, a branch of the Deutsches Museum, enabling the latter's extensive aircraft collection to be displayed to great effect.
Developments in aircraft construction are traced with the aid of a selection of vintage machines. The multiplicity of uses, civil and military, served by flying devices of various kinds, is also illustrated with particular clarity.
This site is an historic airfield originally used during World War I.
