For me it was a little nostalgic trip, it has been almost 20 years since the first visit. A little „tired” expositions, but on good level either for adults or children. Lack of english infos and description can be tough for non-german speakers.

We went to the Naturkunde Museum on a Saturday late morning; it was not busy at all, so we got to enjoy the whole exhibition at our own pace. For 5EUR, I found that it was worth it, the museum is larger than I expected,...More

This is a great museum, well laid out and my 6 year old son loved it. Only criticism is that information was in German with only limited info cards in English available for visitors.

Actually there are 2 museums, both in a nice park, 10-15 minutes walking distance. One museum is a museum exhibiting all kinds of animals from the world and the others is based around prehistoric animals and fossils. Both are very interesting and you can spend...More

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

My daughter is a museum enthusiast and she thoroughly enjoyed this one. Although written information is in German, the audio guides we fabulous. We were able to hear the bulk of the information in English. There are several hands-on areas for kids to entertain themselves....More
