thread Berlin technological museum
A reconstructed Z1 and Z3, and then various 50s/60s specimens in the flesh
permalink Dammit, yet another
reason to get to Berlin at some point. I'm sure I can despatch Mrs Witchy off to some Art Gubbins while I peruse :)
permalink Be warned
That while the specimens are great, their importance (certainly with regard the later models) is significantly overstated. The Z3 reconstruction is also a functional reconstruction with modern electromechanical switches- go to Munich for the proper one.

Having said that, the Z2* models are really awesome, and in perfect nick.

We also went to the Videogame museum, which has a frankly amazing arcade cabinet from 1985-ish GDR, which has about 8 or 9 games that are kitsch and also really really good :)

permalink Ah yes,
Deutsches Technikmuseum. Fucking love that place, have been a fair few times.

See also the Koc* Museum in Istanbul for shedloads more trains and boats and planes and indeed a submarine.
