“Unsung treasure in Friedrichshafen”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

The Dornier museum might slide past your radar screen when planning a trip to Friedrichshafen - but that would be a pity. Dornier was and remains a leading company in aviation - it continues with NASA on the space program - but their historical work in flying boats and pushing the envelope on flying gets an amazing treatment in the museum. It also has a lovely gift shop and cafe with great views of the airport and incoming Zeppelin.

“Nice Layout Museum.”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Don't expect a lot of Dornier's WW2 aircraft or work on display. This museum time lines his work from his early days through to the modern time on space technology. Very interesting, covers a lot about his flying boats. Nice static displays in the hanger and in the outside exhibits. It's opposite the Zeppelin Airship hanger ( modern) which is fitting since Dornier started with Zeppelin. Dornier's contribution to aviation is to be admired and is a worthy museum to visit. the restaurant look good but didn't stay as went to the Zeppelin museum. You get discount if purchase tickets for both at either museum.

“Terrific Air Show and Museum”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

A great day out on a beautiful, sunny August day. There were many national and international exhibitors and there was such a terrific atmosphere. It was a great occasion also for kids and it was good to see that so many families made the effort to attend. And don't miss the Museum Shop!

“Exceptional range of exhibits on aircraft and space craft”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Highly recommended, spent around 1-2 hours with a lovely range of models, a lot of movies and documents and full size planes and helicopters, when I visited had a wonderful model train presentation from local enthusiasts. A must go! Save some money by being a combo ticket that also includes the Zeppelin museum!
