Technical museum with deep dives into different areas. There's many more than can be explored in one visit, so it's useful to focus on one or two that strike your fancy. My personal favourite is The Mine. Suitable for adults and children alike (though not all parts are equally interesting to younger age groups).
Mining is amazing but not for the unfit Shipping is good. Machines were great. Toys were small but amazing I was disappointed on flight. For a country with a history of aviation they could have done so much better Great Museum. Cheap for what you get Warning if you do not read German the English signage is limited. But better than German signs in any British Museum I loved my visit
