Berlin - Today We Toured The German Technical Museum

Today we saw snow for the first time on our trip. We have been here for a week now - and the temperature has been in the 40s most of the time. Today started out sunny - but by 2 PM the snow started to fly. I rushed to the mall to buy a ski cap for 1 euro. You can get anywhere you want on the train - tram - or bus - but usually you have to walks the last leg like we did to the Technical Museum. 

German are not to proud of the Nazis - they call the Nationalist Socialists. They have very little Nazi stuff in their museums - and usually the stuff there is not in good shape. Nothing is restored. 

The Technical Museum is in an old railroad yard with displays set up in the old round houses. Admission was 8 euros - but Lulu was allowed in free by showing her teacher's card. We were there from 12 to 5.
