I enjoyed visiting here before I had to leave for the airport. As I'd attened a marine conference, my friends and I were given free admission, which was great, although I actually felt bad, being as museums need funding. We didn't have long, as I...More

We were there for 1,5 hours- it was a nice break from the city. And it was a very fine exhibit - non commercial

This is a well set out museum on a number of floors. There are many exhibits - skeletons, specimens, videos with some English translations. Cost 2 euro for seniors.

Surprisingly interesting and thorough museum, all for a relatively inexpensive price. I spent a lot more time here than I originally planned and enjoyed myself much more. I imagine it would be great for kids, as well.

The museum is cheap so don't hesitate to go. It is small but very interesting, with many stuffed specimens, although some are old and need refurbishing! The whale skeletons are beautiful but my favorite part was the black room where they have deep-sea creatures in...More

The museum is fairly small and in an architecturally significant building that somehow survived the war. In the main gallery it has a couple of whale skeletons including a blue whale. The exhibits explore the deep German history of naturalists. The explanations are primarily in...More
