Despite its clumsy name, the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum presents a superb family day out, and one with an interesting scientific bent. Firstly, the wonderful Functionalist architecture, created in the 1930s, has been extensively restored and updated to create a modern museum. The permanent Human Adventure follows its science focus so visitors better understand bodies and feelings, for example – check out the Transparent Woman, a fantastic talking point for kids and adults alike. There is also a terrifically interactive Children’s Museum, a language exhibition and various special exhibitions.
