This museum focuses on the golden age of Zeppelin passenger airships. It is located in the residential area Zeppelinheim, which was built for airship crews at Rhein-Main airport in the 1930s. The rigid airship was invented by Ferdinand von Zeppelin in the 1890s and was used commercially from 1910. The curved building of the museum, specially designed in 1988, resembles the interior of an airship. It contains large-scale models, ranging from the first Zeppelin, launched in 1900, to the Graf ZeppelinII of 1938. Part of the viewing deck of the Hindenburg has been reconstructed, with mannequins of crew in uniforms and a table laid with an original Hindenburg dinner service. Technical material includes an engine from the Graf Zeppelin, a communications radio, structural girders from an airship, a ship’s wheel and a gondola ladder. Films, interactive displays and artificial reality contribute to the experience for visitors. Changing exhibitions are shown in the basement.
