Winfried Oppelt was one of the great pioneers of German control engineering. In 1972 he made a detailed proposal for a permanent exhibition on control engineering at the Deutsches Museum, Munich. The intriguing proposal, which was never realised, included a set of detailed hand drawings by Oppelt. This paper, drawing on an earlier German publication, presents Oppelt's ideas and indicates why it was not accepted.
