Today we got breakfast down the street. WE hoped on the U Bahn and headed for the Deutches Museum. It was raining so we decided to stay inside today. The museum was huge and had loads of information. After the museum, and another great lunch of Currywurst, we left for Olympia park which had a special exhibit for King Tut. We were able to get right in and buy a ticket. This should have been our first sign. Yes, we were finally scammed in Europe. We thought we were seeing the actual relics where in fact, they were fakes. The relics were far too shiny with Gold and could be touched from the floor. Even huge pieces that weren’t present when Lindy saw it were there. This made us furious! If we had been in the states we would have asked for our money back.
Later, we went to the BMW museum but it was closed. We checked out the gallery though and saw some of their cars. We then headed back to our hotel and had a good dinner.
Today we woke up to rain for the first time all trip! Bummer, so we ate breakfast next to our hotel, a bit pricey, but tasty. We then took the metro to the Deutches Museum of Science and Technology. It was massive! There was everything you could imagine, my favorite were the plane and ship sections! We spent 4 hours there and then thought we were going to see the King Tut exhibit I saw in Chicago, but it was a reconstruction! After spending 40 Euros we realized we were seeing fake shit,, we were not happy and basically left the exhibit and couldn’t find anywhere it told us they were reproductions except this random tour pamphlet I had.
