The Technik Museum Speyer is a technology museum in Speyer (Rhineland-Palatinate), Germany.[1]


The museum was opened in 1991 as a sister museum of the Auto & Technik Museum Sinsheim and is run by a registered alliance called "Auto & Technik Museum Sinsheim e.V.". As of 2004, it has more than 2,000 exhibits and an exhibition area of more than 150,000 m² (indoors and outdoors). It attracts more than half a million visitors per year. In addition to the exhibitions, the museum also sports a 22 m x 27 m giant IMAX Dome theatre.

Walk-in exhibits

In spring 2002, Lufthansa donated a retired Boeing 747-200 aircraft, which is now accessible to visitors.

In April 2008, a Soviet/Russian Buran spacecraft, OK-GLI, was transported to the Technik Museum and is now another walk-in exhibit.

Other walk-in highlights are an Antonov An-22 and several other aircraft types, locomotives, the houseboat Sean O'Kelley of the Kelly Family, and submarine U9 of the German Navy.
