Deutsches Museum - Munich
Today we visited the Deutsches Museum in Munich and all I can say is wow, this is exactly what a museum should be. My son and I spent more than six hours wandering around and still only got to see about half of it. Here's a few photos but nothing can do justice to seeing it in person, and this is just a small fraction of the engines, pumps and other machines in the mechanical power section.
A genuine 1 horse power motor.
1847 10hp Half beam steam engine.
1839 30hp Oscillating cylinder steam engine.
1865 160hp Poppet valve steam engine, note random human to indicate scale.
1835 20hp Beam engine.
1863 12hp Double side valve steam engine, I've never seen one of these.
