<p>By far and away the biggest, best and most famous museum in <a href="/contikipedia/articles/munich">Munich</a> is the <a href="http://www.deutsches-museum.de/en">Deutsches Museum</a>. Primarily a science and technology museum, it has working models of almost anything including bridges, engineering, math, physics, electricity, engines, hydraulics and some amazing airplanes, including a Messerschmitt Me 262, the first jet fighter. The museum is huge and there are often long lines on the weekends and holidays. The Deutches is the largest museum in <a href="/contikipedia/articles/germany">Germany</a> and people travel from all over <a href="/contikipedia/articles/europe">Europe</a> to see it&#8217;s exhibits.</p> <p>The museum district around the Konigsplatz is also home to the &#8216;old&#8217; &#8216;new&#8217; and &#8216;modern&#8217; art galleries. Munich is also the home of <span class="caps">BMW</span> and the Olympic park is the present home of the <span class="caps">BMW</span> Museum, showcasing the past, present and future of this Bavarian icon.</p>
