  • Treasure trove of knowledge, history and fun all rolled together. Hours passed unknowingly when we were there and my family absolutely loved the trip here. Recommended!
  • Great place. Spent like 3 hours there. Interesting and we'll put together
  • Very interesting, kids were amazed, so many animals and huge dinosaurs. And the minerals collection is also amazing
  • Great museum. Really interactive and loads of stuff for kids. Been twice and i'll go again. €5 entrance for students with a card and they have a picnic area. You could spend all day in one room.
  • A gorgeous museum. Contains treasures of various nature science fields. Paleontology, astronomy, zoology, lithology... I personally loved it. Especially if you're fond of nature science, highly recommended to visit this museum!

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
