We did come with three children, aged 23,21 and 17. But they enjoyed this museum so much as we did. You can meet the only original of its kind in Europe; Tristan, the T-Rex, face to face. Along with some 30 million object displaced in...More

Although it doesn't hold a candle to London's breathtaking Natural History Museum, it was fascinating to learn about the finding of Tristan the T Rex and there is an excellent fossil collection there too.

A rather dated and old fashioned style museum but the dinosaurs are incredible.The place needs some up dating and the collections re organising but well worth a visit.

For 8 euros you can spend good time in this museum learning a lot and also good for children. It is easy to find but very hard to find parking place.

It’s ok to have a look for a few hours but there’s not much English translations on the displays. It’s smaller than I expected. €8 in is cheap so I can’t complain too much.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

Like everyone else, I'd say 2 - 3 hours to really enjoy the experience. A very user friendly museum.
