The MTU Museum
MTU Aero Engines’ museum boasts one of the finest collections of aero engine exhibits worldwide: On almost 850 square meters, roughly 50 items are on display, giving an overview of the history of powered flight. Among the exhibits are aero engines from the early days of aviation, some of which are the last extant copies in the world, as well as complete state-of-the-art propulsion systems and propulsion system components from today’s aircraft. The museum also showcases innovative, cutting-edge propulsion technologies for tomorrow’s aviation. A star of the exhibition is on display in a highly visible location at the entrance to the museum: the huge GP7000, which powers the Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger airliner.
In 2018, the public will again have an opportunity to view the unique collection of Germany’s leading engine manufacturer on several occasions. The museum is open on the following days:

|Sunday, 06/30/2019||1 p.m. - 4 p.m.|
|Sunday, 11/24/2019||1 p.m. - 4 p.m.|
