Exhibition

Aerial Deutsches Museum

"Turn ideas into successes. For our people. For our country." -- something that can now be experienced in the works of the prizewinners. This is the intent of the permanent exhibition on the Deutscher Zukunftspreis which opened at the Deutsches Museum in Munich at the end of 2006. The presentation of each of the ten award-winning projects demonstrates the scientific excellence and lasting impact of the innovation. The exhibition presents the involved research workers, scientists, developers and engineers as people with the important function of setting an example of excellence: the "Hall of Fame" honors the achievements of these individuals. The diversity of the scientific disciplines is presented in a consistent use of form which also succeeds in accentuating the uniqueness of each project.

Information

Like perhaps no other natural science and technical museum, Deutsches Museum reflects the technical progress and achievements in technology and the natural sciences of this century, but also attendant social changes.
The Deutsches Museum is one of the most important science museums in the world with the largest collections of valuable original technical and natural science exhibits. With over 55,000 m² of exhibition space it is not only one of the largest museums in the world, it is also one of the most successful: ca. 1.4 million visitors from around the world come to the Deutsches Museum every year and are fascinated and enthusiastic – two thirds of the museum’s visitors are teenagers or young adults.

"Deutsches Museum – Masterpieces of Science and Technology" – this is the museum’s official title and thus the place where the permanent exhibition on the award-winning projects of the Deutcher Zukunftspreis has found a home.
