Technical Museum in Speyer (Speyer Technik Museum in German) is one of the newest museums of its kind in Germany, but also one of Europe's largest with a department dedicated to space flight.
The exhibition presents more than 2 thousand exhibits, and is divided into two parts. One, with an area of over 25 thousand m2 is located in a roofed hall, the other with an area of 150 thousand m2 is in the open air area.

Noteworthy is also the exhibition "Apollo and Beyond," devoted to the conquest of space. You'll see here space suits, space food and toilets, which operate in weightless conditions.
Supplementary to museum exhibition is the only IMAX DOME in Germany, where movies are not displayed on a typical flat screen , but on a huge dome with a diameter of 24 m and an area of nearly 1000 m2.
This is a great place not only for males.
