Experience 160 years of innovation firsthand! Join us on a fascinating tour through the world of optics and discover more than 1000 exciting, often unique exhibits in an area of 1000 m².
In ten categories – from planetariums to optical lithography – you’ll enjoy fascinating, useful and unexpected encounters with the history of the development of products and technologies important to ZEISS. Explore the evolution of trailblazing optical technologies, methods and instruments not only visually, but by trying numerous exhibits out for yourself, including microscopes and binoculars. You’ll also be amazed by a superbly realistic starry sky in the mini-planetarium.
The exhibition takes you from the present into the past: from state-of-the-art high-tech medical instruments to the photo shot by Neil Armstrong with a ZEISS camera during the first moon landing to one of Napoleon’s sets of binoculars.
Come to Oberkochen and visit the new ZEISS Museum of Optics!
