Speyer Travel Tip:
The Technik Museum Speyer is a technology museum in Speyer (Rhineland-Palatinate), Germany.
The museum was opened in 1991 as a daughter of the Sinsheim Auto & Technik Museum and is run by a registered alliance called "Auto & Technik Museum Sinsheim e.V.". As of 2004, it has more than 2,000 exhibits and an exhibition area of more than 150,000 m² (indoors and outdoors). It pulls more than half a million visitors per year. Additionally to the exhibitions, the museum also sports a 22m x 27m giant IMAX Dome theatre.
In spring 2002, Lufthansa donated a retired Boeing 747-200 aircraft to the museum which is now accessible to the visitors. In April 2008, a Soviet/Russian Buran spacecraft, OK-GLI was transported to the Technikmuseum and is now another walk-in exhibition. Other highlights are the houseboat Sean O'Kelley of the Kelly Family and the submarine U9 of the German Navy.
