superb in general; The level of detail is just right, from the views of the labs, the fossilised cross-sections hanging on the walls, the walk through time-periods (colour-coded) and the stand-out Mammoth and Wild-Elephant reconstruction. It's pretty small, to be honest and not much in...More

One of the smaller Natural History Museums that I have visited but has good content. Only German spoken here and all information is only in German. I thought the museum and the content were well layed out. Worth a trip. Only 5 Euro to enter.

Wonderful Museum of fossils, Dinosaurs and other artifacts. The displays ALL encourage child interaction. Displays are stunning and capture the imagination of child and adult alike. NOTE that the display explanations are in German only.

The children totally loved this place and they totally loved it. Unfortunately non-german speakers don't feel welcome-the whole information is in German and we ended up translating all the time. It was nice to see but not a place to come back.
