Our kids are nature enthusiasts...my daughter loves butterflies and minerals, my son loves fossils and birds of prey. This place was a godsend on a snowy, cold March day when they just couldn't take anymore touring churches or bridges. Has the most interesting bug collection...More

Interesting nature displays which kids would find fun. No English information available, so of limited interest to us as seniors. Was included in our city museum pass - would not suggest you pay for entry to this place if you don't speak German.

This is not one of the world's premier natural history museums. It has a few interesting things but nothing spectacular. Be aware that it is all in German.

There is a brief leaflet in English for this museum but otherwise it is all in German. It's still an interesting visit and was really nice watching the bee hive with the bees flying in and out through perspex tubes to the outside world!
