Located on a small island in the Isar river. Formerly known as Kohleinsel, the island was renamed to Museumsinsel (museum island) in 1903 when it was given to the Deutsches Museum. In addition to its main site on the island, the museum also has two branches in and near Munich and one in Bonn.
The Flugwerft Schleißheim branch, located north of Munich's city center displays various interesting airplanes which there was not enough room for at the Museumsinsel site. Its outstanding feature is a workshop dedicated to the restoration of all kinds of airplanes for the purpose of static display. The latest branch, located at Thresienhöhe in Munich is called the Deutsches Museum Verkehrszentrum, and is focused on transportation technology.
