Fantastic display of dinosaurs from tiny trilobites to t-rex. In addition o the main attraction, there is also a floor dedicated to stuffed animals. Visitors of all ages would enjoy this museum.

Not the American Museum of Natural History in New York but a very good museum in its own right. Along the same lines as the one in NY on a slightly smaller scale.

That's the only museum I visited in Frankfurt and I was a bit disappointed. Not for the contents, but because most of information was in German only. Despite of that, it's a big museum with lots of animals and dinosaurs' fossils.

Very well structured, interesting exhibitions in a beautiful building. You need almost a full day to explore everything.

And each time I find something interesting that I had missed before. Of course, I love the dinosaurs best but there is so much there that I can't possibly summarize anything. You've got to see for yourself. And while you are in the area: don't...More

Hi, to 99% i think to remember that we used the credit card because like to save the cash for dining or whatever else. But you can call them too or have the hotel find out for you. To be 100% sure. 👩
