The Technical Museum

On the last morning I visited the technical museum in Berlin. It is a huge museum, covering lots of technologies, all housed in a former railway station and its sheds. I was there mainly to look at the textile, paper making and printing technologies. There were lots of different weaving machines and mechanisms to look at and it was a really interesting museum. There were a few interactive exhibits and it was possible to see demonstrations of the machines but unfortunatly not on the day I visited.

Some films I made of the interactive weaving exhibits:

The use of the old railways sheds was really interesting and it seemed like all the old mechanical devices had been left in place. The grounds were full of old bits of machines, as well as a couple of windmills!
