von Annalisa Arcella
What’s your name and where do you come from?
I’m Muralidhara from India. I am here with my wife.
Is it your first visit to the Deutsches Museum?
Yes, it’s the first time.
What do you remember of your visit?
We’ve just arrived. We would like to see all the exhibitions but we are worried that we can’t do it in one day.
Is there a museum like the Deutsches Museum in India?
There are various museums but not so big. They are smaller and each one is specialized in some field.
Would you like to come back?
Yes, of course and we have a suggestion for the Deutsches Museum: to do a ticket valid for several days because it’s impossible to see all in one visit.
Those living in Munich spend their vacations at Lake Garda, in the Alps, on a cultural tour through Asia or at the beach. In turn, people from all over the World travel to Munich. Many of them visit the Deutsches Museum. In our exhibitions, a tour group from Yokohama might meet a family from Brindisi, while a group of students from Oslo might stand next to a company delegation from Moscow while the two groups are watching the popular high-voltage demonstration with Faraday's cage. This wonderful blend of nationalities makes those of us museum employees who are staying at home want to travel abroad, and it also makes us curious to find out more about our international visitors. At our offices, we also have colleagues from foreign countries. Annalisa from Italy is currently working at the communication department. She has agreed to interview our visitors from abroad during their visit to the museum this summer.
