Yup! I got to experience a space museum in another country! (Deutsche Raumfahrtausstellung Morgenrothe-Rautenkranz e.V.) It was kept kinda quiet from me for a while but ultimately I found out just before we pulled in, haha! I was so pumped to see what it was like. I’ve been to the space museum multiple times in D.C. (both actually) but really..who can ever get tired of space?
So, we pulled in and had a little stop at this little mom and pop shop that was all spaced themed and sold pastries and what not. Reminded me of Roswell with all the space themed names, etc. When we pulled in to the actual space museum, it was honestly much smaller than I had expected. But, they really fit quite a bit of stuff into this building! They had a ton of models and examples of space travel through history. Luckily, they had these little recorders that told you about everything you were looking at because it was obviously in German.
If you didn’t know this about me, or hadn’t gathered it from my content. I love space. I always have, it just fascinates me. Anything that has to do with space you can bet that I will be interested in it, so I was like a kid in a candy store the entire time we where in there. I mean come on, the name M81 Media was inspired by space!
Okay so anyway, after walking through the museum and checking out all the cool artifacts, you get to the end and they have this room you have to walk through. You can’t tell anything about it, it just has a curtain hung up and you know you go in. When you walk in, it’s a big room covered in neon paint and blacklights everywhere. It looked like you just walked into space, I just thought that was so cool. What can I say, I also have a soft spot for glowing things. Especially when arranged into a theme. Honestly, it reminded me of those posters from the 90’s with all the colors, haha! A poster that…you were in. You’ll see the photo below.
Anyway, thanks for checking out this quick little blog. If you’re ever in Germany (and you love space) check it out! Lastly, enjoy the photos!
