The interesting thing about this place is it lets you use your imagination when it comes to the dinosaur collection. Unlike other museums I have been to that give pictures and ideas of what is believed they looked like when they were alive, this museum gives the outline for scale, allowing your imagination to fill in the gaps of appearance. They have an amazing bird display! And the size of the museum is just perfect. 2 hours went by pretty fast and I completed the full museum. It’s a great stop to add to any trip. It allows you to appreciate our past natural world at a nice stroll without overwhelming you.

Nice and big museum with really nice installations. Most of the text (90%) were only in German, so I didn’t really get that much out of the visit. The dinosaur bones and the stuffed birds were really nice. The mineral collection was nice also.

The Natural History Museum was great fun. I was drawn to it because I had read it has the largest collection of large dinosaurs on display in Europe. The 1st main hall you go into is full of Dinosaur skeletons& fossils. It has a full T-Rex, Triceratops& Diplodocus plus many more, aswell as part fossils including a Supersaurus leg, which is ridiculously huge!. The is also a dinosaur with actual preserved skin! There is so much animal exhibits to see in this museum, one of the best collections I've seen.
Away from animals there is also geology labs, space exploration area and a cast of the famous Lucy, unique in Europe. This isn't just for the kids, I loved it here, so interesting& educating. Loved the full scale dinosaurs out front aswell!

Very nice museum both for adults and children.

The museum has different floors shorted on the ground floor with huge dinosaurs skeletons and geological evolution, a small Egyptian room and on the opposite side another small room, this time for writers. On the same level you can find another section for minerals and fossils.

If you go to the level one you will find a lot of different types insects and small animals.

On the top floor you can see big mammals and other different of big animals spices that I have to say that looks impressive.

The location is not ideal but tram, tube and bus goes near.

The problem of this museum is that the 90% of it is written in German. So it hard to know what is it saying of you know the language yet.

This was a great stop with an interest for all types of people. The dinosaurs were epic and there's lots of open space for kids to wonder but still be seen by parents.
