Deutsches Museum – A Quest For The Quirky

I want to go to the museum.” Those were the words I never thought I’d hear. Ever. Not from the mouth of my brother. But he said them. And off to the museum we went. To the Deutsches Museum in Munich, to be exact, whose ample bowels are a splendid repository of science and technology paraphernalia. Germany has come up withย quite a lot of this stuff over the years.

I won’t bore you with the fascinating details of the various exhibits (not being sarcastic for once, I love all that stuff!) – my photo hunt was rather aimed at the quirky side of things.

Like this staircase! Without…

…and with people on it ๐Ÿ™‚

Or these windows reflecting a building site:

Ditto. So much for “the food of the future”.

People swimming in the Isar… it was a hot day!

 

I shall leave you with some famous last words (as displayed on a wall behind the knitted coral reef):

    You have such a fabulous photographic eye. The staircase photo was fantastic.

    And I love the knitted coral reef. And the quotes, especially the one about the lack of chauffeurs; I’m definitely feeling that lack right about now.

    Where we’re pretty certain that few locals could pass a German driving test. Or perhaps any driving test.

    I could spend all day in museums and art galleries – much to the horror of my offspring, who end up sitting on a wall playing with their phones whilst their mother bounds around like a four year-old in Cadbury’s factory. I love the photos – you have an eye for a good picture opportunity. The knitted mince is gross.

      Thank God for those phones and I don’t say that very often!

      Ooooh, the Cadbury’s factory… it’s on my bucket list. As is the chocolate museum in Cologne, I so hope I’ll make it there eventually.

    You are the Queen of Quirk. I particularly liked the photo of your mum & brother. I’m guessing Brother is the wide one, yes? Super Dude! And i LOVE those quotes. ( thanks to whoever included English translations )

      Oh yes… and, as you may be able to tell, he was pulling his T-shirt up at the time, proving that the activity in his stomach did, indeed, surpass that in his head. It’s a family trait ๐Ÿ™‚
