The permanent exhibition vividly illustrates, for example, the “lighter than air” principle of flight and makes it tangible through experimentation stations. The triumphant history of the Zeppelin Group and its pioneers demonstrates how technical innovation emerges and how the cult surrounding the zeppelin has been celebrated for over century.

In its 4000 square meter exhibition space, the Zeppelin Museum presents the world’s largest collection of airship aviation material as a multi-media narrative of a living history of brave people, technical innovation and peak performance.

A highlight of the museum is the partial reconstruction of the Hindenburg. Visitors can climb a boarding ladder onto LZ 129 passenger ship, rebuilt according to its original dimensions and closely approximating the experience of what it would feel like to be a passenger on this innovative, luxury airliner.
