Munich: Sunday

Daylight Savings time is over in Germany. We slept in, had a nice breakfast, and still joined the crowds at Deutsches Museum shortly after 10am. We ended up waiting over half an hour. Once inside we were a bit overwhelmed by the options, but I had prepared a few things I definitely wanted to see. The replica of the Altamira cave was first on that list.

Afterwards, we wandered through the various departments staying longer in areas that were interesting, or had ongoing demonstrations, and faster or skipped stuff that didn't.

I knew Mining was impressive, but I had forgotten how well executed the various exhibits are. Narrow passage ways and lots of people added to the claustrophobic feeling.

Marine Sciences, marine travel, and vessels was well done and a lot of fun, too.

Even though we had a good time, we didn't stay as long as I expected.

After some consideration we settled for the Munich tram museum. Turns out there was an art show with local artists in the exhibition area between the trams, which didn't really excite us so we left quickly.

We finished the afternoon with a walk along the Isar.
