Energie - Motoren – Im Herzen der Maschinen

In the organizer's words:

Your power, our drive: motors convert the power from fossil fuels or sustainable sources into kinetic energy. This is how they make wheels roll, make tools work or drive power generators. As the heart of machines, motors keep our modern world running.

In the Energy - Motors exhibition, the entire range of drives is presented and shown in motion on seven rectangular themed islands. With numerous hands-on stations, there are wind turbines, gas turbines, combustion engines, water turbines, hot air engines, wave and tidal turbines to discover and experience. The first diesel engine built by Rudolf Diesel in 1897 cannot be overlooked in the center. The theme islands are framed by two long walls. On the northern side, pioneering innovations from all areas of energy technology are arranged in a historical trail on the inventor wall. In front of it is a 45 m long bench that invites visitors to linger - and to view the treasures of the collection in the wall-filling motor shelf opposite.

Live every day. New every day. For individual visitors and small groups of up to five people, guided tours, demonstrations, science shows and hands-on programs in various exhibitions take place daily, free of charge and without registration. The current daily program is published every day at around 9:20 a.m. on the website and in the Deutsches Museum app.
