Munich is famous all over the world for its Oktoberfest. Every autumn it's carried out at Theresienwiese Square, but Munich can offer you something more than good beer, traditional pretzels and girls in national costumes. Munich can boast of many good museums, the most famous of which are: the Deutsches Museum, the National Prehistoric Collection, The State Museum of Ethnology, the Old Pinakotheka and the Munich City Museum.
The Deutsches Museum.
The enormous Deutsches Museum is situated on the Museum island on the Isar River. It's devoted to the various aspects of science, engineering and transport. The museum is so large that you'll hardly manage to examine it all at once. The most interesting is the section of miniatures, the planetarium and the new transport section.
The Old Pinacotheka is the biggest and the oldest museum in Munich. It was built in the 19th century by the order of Grand Duke Louis I, so as to keep there all the paintings that belonged to him. At present day the great collection of works by the masters of the 14th – 17th centuries is exhibited there.
