The Deutsches Museum, founded 1903 by Oskar von Miller, is one of the biggest museums devoted to science and technology in the world. It attracts approximately 1.5 million visitors per year. The unique collection of exhibits on display (both historical and modern), is supplemented by interactive experiments, dioramas, films and multi-media systems. DM also has an extensive library and extended archives. Research into the history of science and technology is one of the central statutory tasks of the DM as a member of the Leibniz Association.
